Fern Meyer
01/03/1936 - 08/09/2018
Fern Elaine (Birkeland) Meyer, born on January 3, 1936 in Dupree, South Dakota, to Inga (Olson) Birkeland and Clifton Birkeland, passed away at age 82 on August 9, 2018 surrounded by loved ones at her home in Edgewater, Florida. Fern graduated from Dupree High School in 1954 and St. John's McNamerra School of Nursing in 1958. She was a Registered Nurse at the Halifax Hospital Medical Center and was continually promoted. Fern later supervised the operating room and then Same Day Surgery. Fern was not finished yet, she began working as a Nurse at Surgical Associates of Volusia until retiring in 2013. The amazing thing about Fern was that she completed this while raising three children on her own. Fern is survived by her sons, Eric and Shelley Meyer and David and Sheri Meyer; daughter, Patty and Troy Agee; brothers, Russell and Beverly Birkeland, Gary and Sonja Birkeland, John and Rita Birkelend, and Ken and Karen (Jeffries) Birkeland; sister, Cathy and Wes Buckmaster; grandchildren, Jessica Hurst, Melissa and James Lake, and Riley Meyer; and great-grandchildren, Paxton Lake and Parker Lake. She also leaves behind her adored dog, Minnie and many close friends that she loved dearly. She enjoyed sewing, gardening and spending as much time as she could with her family. She also really loved to help anyone in need. Friends and family can pay their respects at the memorial service on Friday, August 17 at 12:00 p.m. at Hospice Care Center - Edgewater, 4140 South Ridgewood Ave., Edgewater, Florida, 32141.
