Margaret Songy Meyer (Mag) entered peacefully into eternal rest on July 18, 2020 at the age of 92 after a long illness. She was born on Evergreen Plantation in Wallace, LA on June 12, 1928, the second of eight children of Aubin A. Songy Sr. & Philomene Stewart Songy. She married the love of her life, Gordon Meyer and moved to Harahan where they raised 4 children during their 52 years of marriage. She was a long time parishioner of St. Rita Parish in Harahan and recently St. Angela Merici Parish in Metairie. She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband, brothers Russell Songy & Aubin Songy Jr., sisters Phyllis Hingle, Annette Toomer & Jeanne Songy. She is survived by her 4 children, Donald Meyer(Madeline), Gordon Meyer(Karen), Beth Christensen(Chris) & Linda Griffin(Chuck), sisters Sr. Linda Songy & Sylvia Davis(Chester). She was lovingly known as Babe to her 9 grandchildren & 2 great-grandchildren & Aunt Mag to her 28 nieces & nephews.
Mag and Gordon loved to travel, especially on bus tours which took them to many beautiful destinations from the east coast to the pacific northwest and places in between.
She enjoyed singing in the choir at St. Rita and was an active member of The Silver Trotters. Our family would like to thank her hospice nurses, Maria & Allene & the entire staff at Guardian Angel Hospice for their excellent loving care & her caregiver Betty.
