Dorothy Marie Meacham-Elmer

April 18, 1927 — November 6, 2019

Dorothy Marie Meacham-Elmer passed away at the age of 92 on Nov. 6th 2019 in her home in Elmerville near Sedona, AZ. She was born April 18th 1927 to Harry and Leah Meacham in Cherryvale, Kansas.
Dorothy was 14 years old, when she and friends left Kansas, headed to California. They got as far as Flagstaff, AZ, when Dorothy said, "This is as far I go". She got a job and a room from the local Sheriff and started her new life, no friends and no family. That soon changed when Dorothy met Jay W. Elmer, whom she was destined to meet. Shortly thereafter, they were married December 1942, and moved to live on the Elmer homestead on the Lower Red Rock Loop Road, later tobe named Elmerville. Working and living throughout the Verde Valley, Jay and Dorothy raised their family of 14 children, 8 boys and 6 girls. Her family was her life. Undying love and endless sacrifices were evident every day of her life.
After the children were grown, Dorothy was excited to join the work force once again, where she worked as a retail sales person and manager for different department stores in Sedona. She loved her work and the opportunity of meeting new people. Dorothy excelled at customer relations.
Preceded in death was the love of Dorothy's life, Jay W. Elmer, son Danny Elmer
and daughter Kerry Elmer. Dorothy is survived by daughters Kay Holland and husband Steve, Gay Smith, Joy Dotson and husband Marvin, Debby Riddell and husband Kirk and Sally Carter and husband Mike. Also her sons Jay E. Elmer, Jay William Elmer jr. (Bill) and wife Lenora, Jeff Elmer and wife Angie, Gary Elmer and wife Bea, Randy Elmer and Nancy, Greg Elmer and Donny Elmer and wife Cynthia. Additionally, 35 grand children, 49 great grand children and 4 great great grand children.
