Dona D. Meyer

March 8, 1958 - May 5, 2020

Dona D. Meyer, age 62, of Prior Lake, died peacefully in the presence of her family on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, at Abbott-Northwestern Hospital in Minneapolis.  Dona was born on March 8, 1958 in New Prague to Donald E. and Shirley (Kajer) Meyer.  She graduated from St. Wenceslaus Catholic School and New Prague High School.  A graduate of St. Cloud Vo-Tech School in dental assisting, Dona worked as a dental assistant in the orthodontic field for many years.  In her later years, she worked for Cub Foods, most recently as a cashier.  Dona enjoyed crossword puzzles and reading obituaries.  Though a very private person, she enjoyed time with her family, especially at the cabin in northern Minnesota.


Dona is survived by her mother, Shirley Meyer of New Prague; siblings, Carol (Don) Trytten of Overland Park, KS, Bruce (Debbie) Meyer of New Prague, Ken (Jackie) Meyer of Eden Prairie, Paul (Terri) Meyer of Bloomington, John (Erica) Meyer of New Prague, Liz (Bob) Biaggio of Green Bay, WI; former husband, Steven Luedke of Prior Lake.  She is preceded in death by her father.


Private family services and burial will be held at a later date.

So sorry to hear of Dona’s death. I knew Dona back in her dental assisting days. Two things I know for sure about Dona: she had a heart of gold for her friends and she loved her family intensely. So funny – I remember she did love reading the obituaries and I’m sad to be reading hers now. Rest in God’s peace dear Dona.

All the McDermott family was so sorry to hear of Dona’s passing and want to send love and prayers to you all during this difficult time.
All the years we shared as close neighbors built a strong relationship that has survived and we treasure that. Our memories of Dona as the darling little sister checking up on her sib’s and everything going on in the neighborhood bring us happiness as we remember our shared childhoods. God bless you all, please let me know if there is anything we can do. With love, Lynne and family ( McDermott and Rickert)
