Anita Lucy Meyer was born January 23, 1934 to John and Helen (Jenniges) Bierl on a farm near Lucan, MN in Johnsonville Township, Redwood County. She was baptized on January 28, 1934 at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Lucan and attended school in Wabasso, MN at the St. Anne’s Catholic School.

On December 29, 1954 Anita married LaMoine Meyer at the Tracy Catholic Church Rectory in Tracy, MN. They made their home on a farm east of Marshall, MN until 1958 when they moved to their present farm south of Tracy. From 1952 until 1956 Anita worked as a nurse at the Tracy Hospital. She then worked along with her husband on the farm and raised her family. Anita loved living and working on the farm and took great pride in her yard and garden. She raised many cats and loved watching the birds she attracted with her many bird feeders. Without a doubt, Anita’s greatest joy was her family, who all adored her tremendously.
