Virgean was born on October 5, 1923 in Petersburg, Iowa, the daughter of Louis and Agnes (Klostermann) Koelker. She married Leroy J. Meyer on December 27, 1945 and together, they opereated Meyer’s Tavern for 40 years.
Virgean’s favorite past time was fishing with her husband, Roy. She was an accomplished seamstress and cook. Her freezer was a treasure chest of homemade treats. No sewing project was too big or too small for her. Her family has many quilts with her skilled stitchery. She was an avid Cubs fan, never missing a game on TV.
Survivors include her children: Dan (Donna) Meyer of Dyersville and their children: Ted (Terry) Meyer, Annie (Andy) Hauskins, Kate (Scott) Jappe, Susie (Wayne) Schumacher of Dubuque and their children: Brad (Sonia) Schumacher, Rod (Jessica) Schumacher, Leslie (Tom) Lochner, grandson, Scott (Nancy) Meyer, and 15 great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Leroy in 2006, son, Robert (Carol) Meyer, siblings: Omer (Pearl) Koelker, Don (Gladys) Koelker, Lee (Mary) Koelker, Bernice (Joe) McDonald, Corrine (Harold) Rubner, and brother-in-law, Elmer (Marie) Meyer.
The family would like to thank the staff at Stonehill Care Center for their compassionate care. A special thanks to Hospice of Dubuque, especially, Chris, for making Virgean’s final days comfortable.
In lieu of flowers and gifts, a memorial will be established in Virgean’s honor.
