April 8, 1934 — January 13, 2024

Indianapolis

 

Melba L. Altmeyer, age 89, passed away with her family by her side on January 13, 2024. She was one of the strongest and toughest people you would meet. She had the most caring heart and loved her family more than anything. She loved spending time with her family and you’d often find them playing games and dominoes together. In her free time, she loved to color and work on her sudoku books.

She is preceded in death by her husband Donald A. Altmeyer, her 6 brothers, 1 sister and her grandson. She is survived by her 6 children, Susan Haskin, Sheri (Pat) Madaras, Ronald (Sadie) Altmeyer, Phillip (Sheila) Altmeyer, Donita (Jim) Cooley and Melba Ann (Darryl) Sillings, her 15 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren and 2 great great grandchildren.
