Patricia was born on December 1, 1932 in Brunswick, MO, the daughter of Henry August and Beulah Pearl (Ward) Fromm.  In 1950 Patricia graduated from Brunswick High School in Brunswick, MO.  On May 26, 1951, Patricia was united in marriage to Denzil Meyer at the Brunswick United Methodist Church in Brunswick, MO.  They were blessed with two children, Jeffrey and Victoria.

Patricia worked as a deputy clerk at the Chariton County Courthouse, worked as a bookkeeper at Wooldridge Tax Service, and worked as a teller for County Bank in Brunswick, MO for over 40 years.

She was a member of the Brunswick United Methodist Church, a member of Sigma Phi Gamma, a cub scout den mother, a Pecan Festival committee member, the pie contest chairman, and was the Pecan Festival Grand Marshall in 2009.

One of Patricia’s favorite pastimes was playing music.  She played the organ every Sunday at church, she played piano for the afterschool program Joyful Noise, which was held at church, was a member of the singing group “True Harmony”, a member of the Brunswick Community Choir Contata, and she played the piano at the Brunswick Nursing Home at least once a month.  Patricia loved playing cards, reading, and dancing, but the thing that she loved the most was spending time with her family.  She especially loved spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
