Marian Meyer

1934 - 2014 CAMBRIDGE Marian Meyer, 80, beloved wife of Roger Meyer, died Tuesday, Dec. 16, 2014 at Southwestern Vermont Medical Center after a debilitating set of illnesses. Born Monday, Mar. 5, 1934 in Sterlingshire, Scotland, Marian was the daughter of Dr. William M. Robertson and Janet McKillop Robertson. She attended St. Andrews School in Scotland before the family moved to Nova Scotia when she was 16. There she graduated from Dartmouth High School and Dalhousie University in Halifax where she earned a degree as a licensed x-ray technician. Fate brought her to Cambridge, N.Y. in Jan. of 1956 when she was hired as the first licensed x-ray technician at Mary McClellan Hospital. Shortly after her arrival the then Miss Robertson met a young man named Roger Meyer. It was love at first sight, at least for him. Roger proposed two weeks after their meeting but was refused by Marian. Totally smitten with her, he was persistent and two weeks later she said yes. The rest is history. They were married Sept. 15, 1956 and were married 58 years, 3 months and 1 day until death did them part, at least for the time being. Marian had a lovely singing voice and played the piano, consequently she was a charter member of the Arlington Chorale, the Cambridge Choral Society and the Battenkill Chorale. She and Roger often played together at various functions, she on the piano and he on the saxophone. She was a wonderful woman involved in many aspects of the community. She served as both a Deacon and Elder of the Cambridge United Presbyterian Church. As a member of the Cambridge Valley Order of the Eastern Star, she was the proud Flag Bearer for many years. She belonged to the Shushan Grange, the Mary McClellan Women's Auxiliary and was an EMT with the Cambridge Valley Rescue Squad. Somehow she found time to be a very accomplished knitter, especially Icelandic and Aran sweaters, to be an avid reader, listen to the classical music she so dearly loved and play word games. In her younger years she loved to snowmobile and ice skate. Along with her devoted husband, she is survived by three wonderful daughters, Janet Dorothea Cherbonneau of Brunswick, Maine, Ruth Meyer Davis (Marty) of Cambridge and Amanda Marie Meyer-Hill of Cambridge; 8 grandchildren, Samantha Cherbonneau, Roger Hooker, Ashley (Chris) Romano, Amanda (Kevin) Meadows, Chris and Erik Davis, Marleigh and Delaney Hill; four great-grandchildren, Norah Meadows, Charlie Romano, Benji and Isaac Davis. Marian also leaves behind cousins Ann McNaughton and Phoebe Henry, brother-in-law, John Meyer and numerous nieces, nephews and their families. FUNERAL NOTICE: Friends and relatives are invited to call on Saturday, Dec. 20, 2014 from 3 to 6 p.m. at Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main Street, Cambridge, NY.
