Henrietta Louise Meyer, age 81, passed away peacefully Friday, April 29, 2022 at her home. Henrietta was born September 25, 1940 in New Braunfels, Texas. As the daughter of a church Minister, she grew up residing all over the country including stops in St. Louis, Cleveland, and Chicago. Henrietta’s family moved to Needville, Texas for her last two years of high school. There, while nicknamed “Rita,” she met the love of her life, Wayne. They married in 1960, soon moved to Houston and within four years had three children. Henrietta and Wayne moved the family to Alvin, Texas in 1970, into the home she resided in until death. She worked as an office manager in an Orthodontist office for many years and excelled as a homemaker, taking care of her family. Henrietta was a longtime member of the First Presbyterian Church of Alvin and was an active volunteer at The Gathering Place until her health declined. She is preceded in death by her husband, Wayne Meyer; parents, Edwin and Henrietta Berger; sister, Ruth Strathern; brothers, Dr. Charles Berger and James Berger.
