Sondra P. Meier

October 28, 2017

Sondra P. Meier, age 79, entered into Eternal Life with the care of her children surrounding her on Saturday, October 28 at HSHS Sacred Heart Hospital.

Sondra was born on August 8, 1938 in Plum City, Wisconsin to Lyman and Leona (Andrews) Manor of Arkansaw, Wisconsin. Leona passed away in 1941, and Lyman married Lila Moline in 1942.

Sondra graduated from Pepin High School in 1956 and obtained her teaching degree at the Buffalo County Teachers College.  She furthered her education at UW River Falls, UW Eau Claire, and District I Techincal Institute in Eau Claire.  Sondra taught at the Hegg State Grade School, the Spring Valley Public Grade School, and the Elk Mound Public School.

Sondra had her heart stolen by a dashing young man, Emmett Meier, and they were married on June 25, 1960 at Pepin Hill Evangelical Free Church. Sondra and Emmett enjoyed 34 full and loving years together, until Emmett was called home to Heaven in 1994.

Sondra and Emmett opened their home and hearts to several foster children during their marriage. Sondra was also Emmett’s business partner in Emmett’s construction business, taking care of the books and billing for their company. Sondra served as the Treasurer for the Town of Brunswick for many years, collecting and balancing taxes for the township. Sondra worked with the Eau Claire County Department of Health and Human Services, allowing people to keep the ability to stay in their own homes by providing Home Healthcare Services and by working as a Crisis Intervention Aide. Sondra was valued and trusted employee and a friend to the many people she served selflessly over the years.

Sondra is survived by her children Mark (Beverly) Meier of Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, and Jennifer Meier of Eau Claire, Wisconsin; her mother Lila Manor of Eau Claire; six grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; four sisters and one brother, and many, many friends and family members.

Preceding Sondra in death was her husband, Emmett; parents, Lyman and Leona Manor; Father-in-Law and Mother-in-Law, Herman and Emma Meier; and her sister, Sharon McDonough.

Sondra was a kind-hearted, loving lady who dedicated her whole life to caring for her family and living her life for the Lord.
