Bashie Meyer, 86, formerly of Fox Chapel and most recently of Longwood at Oakmont, passed away on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2015.

Born in Pittsburgh in 1928, the youngest of three girls – the late Jean Eisenbeis and the late Nancy Murray – born to Jack Burnside and Beulah (Witherup) Burnside.

Bashie was the beloved wife of Gregor F. Meyer for 47 years before his death in 1997.

She was the loving mother of Lisa Meyer Doyle (Greg Doyle) of Highland Park, Gregor F. Meyer, Jr. (Ursula) of Aspinwall, John B. Meyer (Rina) of Chicago and the late Karyn Meyer; loving grandmother of Gregor A. and Ursula A. Meyer and Jack and Elisa Meyer.

Bashie was a graduate of Carnegie Tech and she and her husband were long-time members of the Pittsburgh Field Club, where her best memories were golfing with her friends and, in her words, “two lucky hole in ones” in 1974 and 2006.

In addition to golf, Bashie had a great fondness for paddle tennis and her beloved group of friends called the Yo Yos.

Over the years, she and her husband had many great travels. She loved to entertain and socialize with her weekly bridge and poker buddies. She and her husband enjoyed living in Pittsburgh and Boca Grande and most importantly the many friends that blessed her life.

A Christian Funeral Mass was held at St. Scholastica Church, Aspinwall. Interment was private.

In lieu of flowers, the family would like to thank the good souls who cared for her at the Forbes Hospice. Memorial Contributions can be made in her memory to The inpatient Hospice Unit at West Penn Hospital c/o Allegheny Health Network, 4818 Liberty Ave. Pittsburgh, PA 15224.
