Joann Meyer was born on July 1, 1934, at home on the family farm near Hankinson, N.D., to Peter and Anna (Renelt) Krump. She was the ninth of 11 children. Joann attended Waldo Country School No. 1.

She met Aloysius “Bud” Meyer at a dance in Tenney, Minn., and they married on June 18, 1953, at St. Philip’s Catholic Church in Hankinson. The couple farmed near Fairmount. They were blessed with seven children and impressed upon them the importance of faith, family, and a strong work ethic. Joann devoted her life to her family. She deeply loved her children and grandchildren.

In Fairmount, Joann was a member of St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, the Foresters and the American Legion Auxiliary.

After Bud retired from farming, they wintered in Brownsville, Texas, where they made many new friends. Joann and Bud enjoyed attending theatre productions in their later years. They moved to the Twin Town Villa in Breckenridge, Minn., in 2016 after Bud was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

Joann lovingly cared for him until his death in January 2022.

Left to cherish Joann’s memory are her children, George, Meeteetse, Wyo.; Bonnie Byers, Moorhead, Minn.; Linda (Keith) Shasky, Wahpeton; Denise (Charles) Pinkney, Fargo; Curt (Joyce) Meyer, Fargo; Calvin (Raynee) Meyer, Rogers, Minn.; and Lisa (Brian) Fiedler, Minneapolis, Minn. She will be lovingly remembered by grandchildren Betsy Byers (spouse Max Boucherat), Wales, UK; Ryan Meyer, Fargo; Brent Meyer, Fargo; Matthew Fiedler, Minneapolis; Nadia Ehlert and Rhett Meyer, Rogers. She is survived by her brother-in-law Lambert (Joan) Meyer, Richville, Minn., and her sisters-in-law Theresa Meyer, Fargo; Beata Meyer, Wahpeton; Mary Meyer, Wahpeton; and many nieces and nephews.

Joann was preceded in death by her parents, Peter and Anna; her husband, Bud; siblings Mary (Manikowske), Francis, Leo, Henry, Margaret (Boeck), Martin, Matthias, George, Lucy and Joseph.
