The spotlight this month at the Good Samaritan Center, Postville, focuses on Louise Meyer who has made her home at the center since October, 1970.

Louise received her schooling in the Postville public school. She was baptized and confirmed in St. Paul Lutheran Church where she is a member.

On February 25, 1914 she was married to Charles W. Meyer of Clermont and they made their home on a farm in Henderson Prairie in Fayette County. They had three children, Esther, Marie and Willard Meyer, all of Postville.
