Joyce B. Meyer






Joyce B. Meyer, 89, of Brandywine, MD, went to her heavenly home on Monday, Feb. 1, 2021. Born March 19, 1931, Joyce was the daughter of Glen and Lillian Bruner of Rockwood, PA. Preceded in death by her parents and her husband, retired Army Major Dean R. Meyer.


She is survived by a daughter, Sandra B. Meyer of Hagerstown, MD, and a son, Richard D. Meyer and wife, Nicole, of Marshall, VA; three brothers: Donald Bruner of Somerset, PA, Harold Bruner of Hackberry, LA, and Ronald Bruner of Rockwood, PA; six grandchildren, and 10 great-grandchildren.


Joyce attended landscape design school at the University of Maryland and worked as a landscape designer for 20-plus years. She also attended a floral design school at Texas A&M and was very involved with the National Capital Area Garden Club’s Landscape Design Council. Her own yard was a showcase of landscape creativity and was recognized as such with an award from the Prince George’s Beautification Committee. Over the years she was active in the Hilltop Garden Club, Mt. Airy Clay Breakers (a garden club; past president), Clinton Presbyterian Church, and Good Samaritan Presbyterian Church. Her hobbies were flower arranging, landscaping, and caring for her feline companions.


Interment will be beside her husband at Cheltenham Veterans Cemetery, Prince Georges County, MD, with a private, grave-side service on Feb. 22, 2021.

It was so sad to hear of Joyce's passing. We met many years ago at the Truckhouse Single dance. We all had so much fun through the years with dancing, picnics, dinners, luncheons, holiday parties. I could go on and on. She will be sorely missed. My condolences to you all. Sharon Porter and David Fisher
