Mrs. Meyers was born July 17, 1930, in Huntington, Texas, the daughter of Evan Edgar and Sarah Greer Fann. She moved to Lampasas in 1956 a year before the Mother's Day flood. She married Claude W. Meyers on August 24, 1965, and he preceded her in death on April 9, 2006. Her greatest joys were her three sons, Donald, Carl, and Wylie. One of the saddest times in her life was losing her oldest son, Donald, in a construction accident when he was 22.
In the late 1950s, Mrs. Meyers served as chairman of the Lampasas County March of Dimes. In the early 1960s, she attended Jackson's Business College.

Guyler Co. dissolved, Mrs. Meyers went to work for Walker & Walker Enterprises, Bend Lanscaping Inc., and Lansford Co. Inc. When Walker & Walker went out of business she continued to work for Lansford Co. and Bend Landscaping until she retired in 1992. During her work years, Mrs. Meyers also volunteered at local nursing homes, for the Lampasas Middle School Life Skills program, and the Temple Veterans Administration Hospital. In addition, she was the coordinator for the American Red Cross blood drives for Lampasas County, a position she held for more than 30 years, first as a volunteer and then later as a coordinator.
After Mrs. Meyers retired, she continued her volunteer efforts, increasing the amount of time she spent on each endeavor. Her hobbies included volunteer work, dancing, and baking. She was well-known for her Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread and one Christmas she baked over 30 loaves to give as gifts to her friends.
