Neoma Obermeyer Thayer

94, passed away May 1st in Florida. She was born June 27th, 1921 in Woodbine, Kansas, one of seven children born to Charles Martin and Lillie (Beckel) Obermeyer. Neoma and Dr. Bruce Thayer, a dentist in Abilene, were married in December 1942 and had two children, Charles in 1944 and Linda in 1947. Their married life was spent in Abilene until Bruce retired in 1976 and they moved to Alamo, Texas, located in the Rio Grande Valley near the Gulf of Mexico. He preceded her in death in March of 1996. She continued to live in their home along a golf course in Texas until moving to south Florida with Linda to be closer to Charles. Neoma moved into a new home built for her on a small lake at the Cascades, a gated senior community in St. Lucie West, Florida. She was very independent enjoying golf, playing mahjong with friends at the community club house and continuing to live in her own home. Neoma was very fortunate to have her children living very close to her, Linda living in Tradition and Charles, with his wife Molly, in Palm City. Charles has one son, Travis. Travis and his wife Megan, live in Atlanta and are the parents of Neoma’s three great-grandchildren, Liam, Grace and Maggie. Neoma enjoyed an active life with family nearby for frequent visits and dinner. She was a wonderful mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Neoma was loved by family and friends and will be missed by all that had the opportunity to know her.
