March 28, 1934 ~ February 28, 2020 (age 85)


It is with great sadness we must announce heaven’s recalling of LaVern L. “Skeeter” Meyer, 85.  He passed away on Friday, February 28, 2020 at Cabinet Peaks Medical Center in Libby of natural causes.  He was born March 28, 1934 in Lostwood, ND.  LaVern was raised on his family’s farm along with his 15 brothers and sisters.  He attended school until the 7th grade, and later in life he completed his GED.

LaVern was drafted into the US Army and received an honorable discharge.  In October of 1965, LaVern married Yvonna Doxey and they moved to Bremerton, WA.  Together they raised 4 children.  He later retired from the City of Bremerton and relocated to Libby, MT to fulfill family obligations. LaVern fell in love again in Libby, this time with karaoke.  If a place offered karaoke, he was likely to be found performing a selection of his favorite music. 

LaVern was preceded in death by his loving wife Yvonna. 

Survivors include his children Shawn Hubell, Debbie Bishop, William Bishop and Monica Meyer-Folmer.

Private family services are being held.  Memorials may be made to the local Hospice in his name. Arrangements are by Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby.  Online condolences and memories may be shared at
