WANTAGE - Carol "Casey" Meyer, 69; "God saw that our mother and nana's journey was complete here and gently passed her into His care on Tuesday, May 6, 2014, while at Barn Hill Care Center." Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., to the late Stephen and Mary Czajkowski, Casey lived in West Milford before moving to Franklin in 1971 and then to Wantage in 1979. She had been a career food server, starting her employment at the former Neil's Restaurant by the Riverdale Circle. Even though she was on her feet for very long hours, Casey enjoyed her time while working at the former Steak Out Restaurant and had retired from the Lafayette House. She took great pride in serving other people and was very proud at being able to say that she was good at what she did for a living. She used to say, "It is one of the hardest jobs, but I am damn good at it." She was predeceased by her husband, Donald J. Meyer, in 2000; her grandson, Hunter James Oldson, in 2011; and her sister, Patricia "Patty" Hay. Casey is survived by her two sons, Donald R. Meyer, of Sussex, and Stephen A. Meyer, of Wantage; her three daughters, Deb Meyer-Gonnoud, of Wantage, Penny A. Meyer-Oldson, of Kansas City, Mo., and Wendy S. Meyer-Harris, of Dingmans, Pa.; her nine grandchildren, Molly Kerr, Dakota Slate, Dylan and Tylar Gonnoud, Carson Oldson, Stephanie and Stephen Meyer, and Turner and Aby Harris; and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 10, at Pinkel Funeral Home, 31 Bank St. (Route 23), Sussex. Interment to follow at Clove Cemetery. Friends may pay their respects to the family from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday, May 9, at the funeral home.
