Virginia Meier

November 15, 1939 — September 23, 2023

Virginia "Ginny" L Meier age 83 died Saturday September 23,2023 at the Clark County Living and Rehabilitation Center in Owen.


Virginia Louise Winter was born on November 15th,1939 in the Town of Grant, the daughter of Celon and Alma (Scharf) Winter. She attended the Granton School system and graduated in 1958. On October 17th, 1959, she united in marriage to William Meier. They lived in the Neillsville area for a few years before moving to Stevens Point for a short while and eventually moved to Tomahawk in 1966. She worked as a server in a local restaurant, before getting a job as a teller in the local bank. She loved to interact and talk to people. In 1976 the family moved back to Neillsville. In October 1976 she started working for 1st National Bank which eventually was bought by M&I and then BMO-Harris. She worked for the bank until she retired in 2005. People would go through the drive-though window just to talk with her and see that beautiful smile she always shared.


Once retired, Ginny loved to take care of her flowers, do jigsaw puzzles, golf, bowl, play games, read, and keep up with all the activities her children and grandchildren were involved in. She loved to travel to see them when possibility presented itself. Weekends in the fall were one of her favorite times to watch football. The Packers and any game that was on. She was a member of St John's Lutheran Church. She also was a volunteer greeter at the Neillsville Hospital until COVID hit in 2020 and that was not an option anymore. Just another chance to share a smile and a friendly word with people she came in contact with. She had some very special friends -her daughter Donna who was her best friend and made sure she was well cared for, her puzzling buddy, and the ladies from St John's who spent time with her nearly every Monday.


Ginny is survived by her children; Bradley (Sandra) Meier, Donna Meier both of Neillsville, Douglas (Lisa) Meier of Fertile MN. and Darrell (Ruth-Ann) Meier of Two Rivers, WI, 6 -Grandchildren and 8 Greatgrandchildren. A brother Roger (Dawn) Winter of Janesville, WI, a sister-in-law Elaine (Chuck) Glassbrenner of Neillsville and many nieces & Nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, a sister Dolly and her husband Bud Rechsteiner, and a brother-in-law Allen and his wife Margie Meier.
