Born on May 25, 1933 in Tarentum, she was the daughter of the late John and Phyllis Esler Ewing.

She was a graduate of Tarentum High School and spent her life as a homemaker.

On May 30, 1952 in Tarentum, she married Thomas R. Messer. He preceded her in death on March 3, 2005.

She was a very involved member of Mt. Tabor Presbyterian Church in Sigel where she enjoyed helping with the Vacation Bible School program.

Mrs. Messer was an avid reader, an animal lover and she enjoyed time spent with her family.

She was a loving mother and grandmother.

Those surviving include her sons, Jeffrey (Mindy) Messer, Thomas (Neva) Messer and Timothy (Susan) Messer; her daughters, Karen Dauer and Heidi (David) Miller; son-in-law, Kenneth Peth; 15 grandchildren; 24 great grandchildren; 4 great great grandchild; as well as her beloved cats, Maggie and Molly.

Her family suggests memorial donations be made to either St. Jude’s Childrens Hospital or the ASPCA which were both favored causes of Mrs. Messer.
