Vivian V. Meier (nee Rosendahl), 86, a longtime resident of Fox Lake, died Sunday, June 9, 2019, at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital, Barrington.
She was born December 15, 1932, in Chebanse, IL to the late Jesse and Lillian (nee Hoppel) Rosendahl. On June 16, 1951, she was united in marriage to Francis “Frank” Meier at Assumption Catholic Church in Ashkum, IL. The couple later moved to Fox Lake, where they raised their family.
Vivian was an extremely selfless and devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother—especially to her son, Mark. In her earlier years, Frank and Vivian would like to dance at ballrooms in Chicago. Most of all, she loved spending time with her family especially at concerts, Wolves games, and at Arlington Race Track. Vivian also enjoyed dining out at nice restaurants, drinking coffee, and eating chocolate sheet cake with her family.
Survivors include her children, Michael (Debbie) Meier, Stephen (Linda) Meier, Kerry (Leslie) Meier, Kim (Sally) Meier, Lorelei (Kevin) Kelly, Cindy (fiancé Dave Madden), Renee (Bill) Vojak, Mark D. Meier, and Teresa Queypo; 13 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; sister, Aline (Alan) Henneberg; sister-in-law, Norma Meier; and many loving extended family members including niece, Jaline Reese.
In addition to her parents and husband, Vivian was preceded in death by grandson, Michael C. Meier; and sister, Jean Rosendahl.
