Wanda May Meyers, age 85, of Ionia, passed away on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at Heartland Healthcare Center in Ionia, under the care of Great Lakes Hospice.  She was born in Middleton, Michigan, the daughter of Lester J. and Reha Ida (Creaser) Pearl, both of whom preceded her in death.   Both her first husband, Luellen D. Smalley, Jr., and her second husband, Lewis E. Meyers preceded her in death.  She worked for Chrysler Motors for many years and following her retirement from there relocated to Florida with Lewis where she also worked for Piper Aircraft for a time.  The couple relocated back to Michigan full time and settled in Ionia to be closer to family.  Wanda attended Shiloh Community Church, was a member of the V.F.W. Ladies Auxiliary in Perrington, and, with her husband, enjoyed dancing fishing, camping and traveling.  She also spent a lot of time at the Ionia Area Council on Aging listening to music and enjoying the good company of friends and other activities.

Smalley of Ionia; 7 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; 2 great-great grandchildren; a sister Lavonne (Bill) Lambert of Sheridan and several nieces, nephews and many friends.  In addition to her parents and spouses, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Suzanne, in 1955; two grandchildren, Kelly and Tabatha; a great grandchild, Casey; and a brother, Kenneth.
