In her community she enjoyed participating in Senior Citizens’ activities and was also a member of the Historical Society in Britt.
She had a great love for music which showed in the many times she and her brother Harold sang for special occasions, and often playing the piano for her own enjoyment at home. When she sat down at the piano she would call her children around to sing or play instruments with her. At Westview she continued this love by playing hymns and tunes from her era for the other residents monthly right up till the time of her death.
Elmer and Mayme loved spending time with family and friends at a lake.
Mayme loved her Lord and saw to it that her children were brought up to love Him as well.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her step-mother (Bertha Pommer), her three siblings (Harold Pommer, Henry Pommer, and Rosa Franzen), and a daughter (Linda Vander Pol).
Survivors include four children, Marj Nibbelink (Archie) of Edgerton, Minnesota, Larry Meyer (Barb) of Seattle, Washington, Jean De Jong (Bob) of Ripon, California, Dale Meyer (Aileen) of Des Moines, Iowa, a son-in-law, Dave Vander Pol of Seattle, Washington, 14 grandchildren, and 28 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.
A celebration of her life will be held at a later date due to the COVID 19 situation.
