Clifford Joseph Meyer
Clifford Joseph Meyer was born June 4, 1906, of Frank Meyer and Marie Burival at Beatrice. As an Infant, he was baptized into the Catholic Church and first received Our Lord in Holy Communion May 31, 1914.
Youngest of eight children, he spent his childhood on his parents' farm three miles west of Beatrice, which he later made the home for his family. On May 1, 1930, he was united to Ella Georgean Sobotka in the Holy Bond of Matrimony at O'Neill, Neb. This union was blessed with seven children.
Clifford was a faithful member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church all his life. As an active participant in the Knights of Columbus and various community organizations, he never refused to lend a helping hand
in time of need.
On Nov. 15, 1966, he departed this life after sustaining injuries at his work. Preceding him in death are his parents; his brother, Raymond; and his sisters Mary, Irene, Helen and Hildegarde. Left to mourn him are his wife, Ella; three sons, Harold of San Bruno, Calif., Gerald of Beatrice, Lawrence of the home; four daughters, Caroline Etherton of Marysville, Marquerite Stearns of Billerica, Mass., Donna Pacha of Marysville, Barbara Really of Overland Park, Kan; one brother, Aloyius of Beatrice; one sister, Anna Sobotka of Inman, Neb; 19 grandchildren, and numerous others who will remember him as a 'true friend.'
A Requiem High Mass was held at St. Joseph's Catholic Church Nov. 18, 1966, and he was laid to rest in the Catholic Cemetery. Pallbearers were Gerald Sobotka of Norfolk, Clifford Sobotka, Eugene Sobotka, both of O'Neill, Marvin Sobotka of Danville, Ill, Richard Sobotka of Inman and David Sobotka of Lincoln. All are nephews of the deceased.

Time cannot steal the treasures
That we carry in our hearts
Nor ever dim the shining thoughts
Our cherished past imparts
And memories of the one we've loved
Still cast their gentle glow
To grace our days and light our paths
Wherever we may go ...1
