Frances Lawler Meyer
May 7, 1934-January 14, 2018

Frances Meyer, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, friend and kindergarten school teacher passed away peacefully on January 14 with her husband by her side.

Fran recently celebrated her 60th wedding anniversary to the love of her life, Robert Meyer. Fran and Bob met as children on the south side of Chicago where they both grew up. Fran was a member of the Lawler family, with her father and several uncles prominent in the medical profession. Fran graduated from Mt. Mary College in Milwaukee, and she and Bob relocated to Southern California shortly after their wedding in 1957, building their life together in the city of Alhambra.

Fran taught kindergarten at Martha Baldwin School in Alhambra for over 30 years, and loved seeing her past students wherever she happened to travel. She was also a longtime member of St. Therese Catholic Church and participated in many capacities including Eucharistic Minister, member of the Parish Council and substitute teacher. She also held various positions in American Association of University Woman and in the American Legion and Girls State Program.

Fran's sunny personality touched innumerable people, and she leaves behind so many close friends, teaching associates, tap dancing buddies and fellow volunteers from her many philanthropic groups.

Her greatest joy came from her family. She is survived by her husband Bob , their four children Francie Madonian (Vartan), Kathie Holthouse (Philip), Michael Meyer (Monica) and Jeananne Woodman (Frank), along with grandchildren Jessica and Jordan Gellatly, Madison, Samantha and Allyne Meyer, Christopher, Luke and Roman Holthouse, Adena Woodman, Devin and Dane Padrnos, and Kirsty and Kurt Madonian. She is also survived by her brother Jerry Lawler and numerous nieces and nephews.

Fran loved life, gave so much to others, and was one of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. She lived her life through faith, with love as her true inspiration. Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 26 at 4pm at St. Therese Catholic Church, 1100 E. Alhambra Road, Alhambra, California, 91801, with a rosary at 5pm on Thursday, January 25, also at St. Therese.
