Anita June Meyers
Anita June Meyers passed away July 24th, 2020 at the age of 85. She died of natural causes, with her family by her side.
She was born June 2, 1935 in City Hospital, Indianapolis, IN to Elsie and Edgar Lee Arnold. She was a 50-year resident of Las Vegas where she lived with her four loving children. She was a devoted mother and the solid foundation of the family. She worked for the Clark County School District for over 25 years and she also gave generously of her time to the National Education Association, a collaboration that gave her opportunities for travel and several awards for her contributions.
Anita shared with everyone her love of the outdoors and spent many a day camping, hiking, and enjoying the mountains in the Nevada and California regions with family and friends. She possessed an uncommon knowledge of plants, flowers and the natural world.
She was a well-informed and enthusiastic music lover and enjoyed everything from classical music to classic rock and Jazz. She was a proficient singer, founding a chorus of friends and neighbors who called themselves the Treble Makers, and she also played several instruments, including piano and flute. She shared her love of music and poetry with her children and her many friends. We expect to think of her often when hearing the music and many songs that she loved.
She is survived by all four of her children; Dan C. Meyers, Kelly M. Meyers, Patty A. Meijer and her husband Rik of Durham, North Carolina, Thom M. Meyers and his wife Mary, and her granddaughter Codi Lee Meyers, all of Las Vegas. Also by her beloved sister-in-law Carol (Todd) Kelso, and her nephews Peter and Jeff Robinson.
Friends and family gathered to celebrate her life on Tuesday, July 27, 2020 at the Mt. Charleston Lodge in Mt. Charleston, a place she loved so much. Her memory will live on in everything she so generously gave to those she touched.
She will be forever missed by all those who knew and loved her.
