Nan Sue Meyer

Nan Sue Meyer, of Glenwood Springs, passed away November 27, 2014. Nan came to the valley in 1969 and stayed. Her many occupations included waitressing, maid, seamstress, artist, friend, lover of the sun and mountains — lover of animals and lover of life. Her life was a rollercoaster at times hitting highs and lows most mortals never achieve. The peaks were thrilling, alive with desire to achieve and be. Her lows were harder to bare for all who knew her and cared, and “truly” loved her. You may have met a “Butterfly Girl” her last incarnation and claim to higher ground as she struggled to achieve “good” and be “positive” with her butterfly cards affirmations to fulfillment. Nan was a deeply caring women. In the spring a memorial will be planned and announced. When brighter days bring her messenger among us. Her art will be made available to those who loved her, and now miss her so. She is survived by former husbands, David Lord of (MN) and Paul Steyh of (CO); brother, Jeff Meyer (MN); sister, Janie Jacobson (MN); one niece, one nephew, and four great-nieces and -nephews. Family contact information is available through Paul Steyh, 970.379.9846 or
