Obituary

Caroline Louise Meeker Meisegeier, age 80 years young, passed away on Sunday, November 21, 2021 at the Denali Center from kidney failure.

Carol was born on May 23, 1941 in Newton, NJ to Kenneth and Sadie (Bisbing) Meeker. After high school, she met a man named James and in 1959, she and James William Meisegeier. In 1962, they gave birth to their son Robert William Meisegeier. They moved to Colorado in 1971 where James was a crop-duster and they moved around the area for business while Carol helped with bookkeeping and running the business. In 1986, James had a severe stroke and they moved to a little town called Barron, WI. He couldn’t find work anymore and was disabled, so Carol went to work at a turkey factory called Jerome Foods at the time and later became Jennie-O Turkey Store. She was a cutting turkeys on the assembly line and later became a box marker where she made all types and sizes of boxes for all products packaged there. Carol met her best friend, Placida Davis, there. They were very close like sisters and were there for each other, in fact, they stayed in touch right up until Carol’s death. James died in 1996 and was laid to rest at Wayside Cemetery. At age 62, Carol retired from Jennie-O and in 2003 she moved to Fairbanks, AK to be closer to her son, Robert. She enjoyed taking rides and spent part of her Summers at Creamers Field watching birds and reading. She liked to go to Bingo on Saturdays and her hobbies were embroidering, word puzzles, and reading books. She met many people here in Fairbanks and was especially close to Arlene Alves who passed away in 2018. As the years went by, her health began to decline and she spent most of her time at home watching TV. She still did some of her hobbies but at a limited pace. In September 2021, she became sick. She was told she had a flu like virus and not Covid, but as time went by it became worse and passed on November 21st.

Carol is survived by her son, Robert Meiseheier, brother, Robert Meeker, sister, Ginger Rude, close friend, Placida Davis, and many nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her parents, Kenneth and Sadie, husband, James, and brother, Kenneth Meeker.

Her ashes will be inurned in Wayside Cemetery in Barron, WI next to James next Spring.
