Much Love and Prayers to the whole Niemeyer family. Your Mom was extra special in my eyes. The love, joy and compassion she showed others was a true gift. She never ceased to amaze me. Whenever she spoke of her family her eyes would light up and I knew that she loved you “more than you will ever know.” Through the years of friendship she showed me just what it is to be a true friend. I love her deeply and will miss her tremendously. Again my prayers are with you during this time of sorrow. Please call if you need anything.
All my love,

I’ll never forget all the memories of things I did with Mary–from 4-H to exercise class to working on Center’s first library. Special memories of when each of you (Katie, Luke, & Gabbie) were born. Now you must teach your children the things your parents taught you that made each of you the special people you are today. You have my deepest sympathy. Becky
Cathy Grimmer says
As Mary’s sister, I appreciate reading and hearing the loving messages from people who loved Mary. Thank you from her family for your kind thoughts, words, and prayers for all of us at this time. Mary was an amazing friend – even to her sister! Tom, Nick, Zack and I will love her forever.

Sympathies are extended to you in the passing of Mary Niemeyer. I appreciate it that memorial gifts are designated for the NFB and ADA. I would like to speak with anyone regarding Mary and this choice of memorials. In other words, I would like to hear her story in this regard, since I am heavily involved in work with the NFB and the Voice of the Diabetic. Please call me at 573-445-6091. Thank you.

Mary is one of the most wonderful women I have ever met. Her love and compassion knew no bounds. Her optimism and compassion overwhelmed me. And her humility sometimes shamed me, because I saw how I should live. I am blessed for having spent time with her on this earth. She was a mentor and a friend. Love, Carla
