Agnes "Aggie" Meyer

Agnes “Aggie”  Meyer of Taylorville died peacefully at her home at Hickory Estates on Monday, December 18, 2017, at the age of 86. Her passing was the end of a long struggle with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP).

Aggie and her twin sister Celi were born on March 22, 1931 to John and Mary DeClerck in Assumption, Illinois. She Married John E. Meyer on January 21, 1951, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Taylorville, and he preceded her in death on July 17, 1993. She is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Sharon and Mark Peters of Taylorville. Aggie’s memory will live on in her beloved grandchildren Douglas (Amy) Peters of Shelbyville, Illinois, and Laura (Rick) Leh of Alton, Illinois as well as her great grandchildren Kolby and Kamden Peters and Devyn Leh.

Her surviving siblings are brothers: Charles DeClerck and Bernard (Ida) DeClerck of Stonington, Illinois; sisters: Mary Margaret Morrison of Pueblo West, Colorado, Nora (Byron) Peters, and Fran (Fred) McKinnon of Taylorville, Illinois. She also is survived by 116 nieces and nephews. Aggie was preceded in death by her husband, parents, brothers Connie DeClerck and Jack DeClerck, and her beloved twin sister Cecilia “Celi” Sutton.

Aggie worked as a keypunch supervisor of the Illinois State Police for 35 years. After retiring from the state of Illinois in 1985, she began her retail career on the Taylorville square, first at Graham Crackers children’s clothing store, followed by Heslovs Boutique, and finally at the Dollar General store. She loved working retail and always had a smile for her customers.

Aggies greatest love was her large family and especially for her grandchildren. She loved cooking and baking goodies for all of them.
