Maryeau Vesta was born on March 12, 1930 in Cresco to Baird and Mary Lomas. She graduated from Cresco High School and later attended the University of Northern Iowa. In 1951, she married Floyd Carver (Iowa Highway Patrolman) after previously meeting him at a traffic accident in which she was involved, and he investigated. They had three children, Teri, Jeff and Kip.
Maryeau graduated from Buena Vista University and taught school in Aurelia, Iowa. She later taught English and Journalism at Storm Lake High School. As yearbook advisor, she was immensely proud of the yearbooks and ‘High Breeze’ publications.
She was an active member of PEO and enjoyed belonging to various card clubs. Maryeau loved to read, play bridge and have conversations with her friends and fellow teachers. She always looked forward to having her kids, grandkids and more recently, great-grandkids over for a visit. She had a tiny poodle named Spike, who quickly became the favored member of the family and enjoyed the ‘run of the house!’
For several years after Floyd developed lung cancer, Maryeau served as his primary caregiver. She set a courageous example of love, compassion and companionship for the entire family.
She is survived by sons, Jeff Carver (Nancy) of St. Louis Park, Minn. and Kip (Rochel) Carver of Lakeville, Minn.; grandchildren, Josh Carver (Shannon) of Hugo, Minn. and Kelsey Johnson (Blake) of Plymouth, Minn., Tiffany DeRoma (Dave) and Micheal Carver (Emily)and Angela Borchardt (Josh) of Lakeville, Minn. and Ashley Bougie (Joe) of River Falls, Wis.; and 10 great-grandchildren.
Maryeau was preceded in death by her husband, Floyd; daughter, Teri; great-granddaughter, Ellie; and infant brother.
In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting a donation be made in Maryeau’s name to The Storm Lake School District Foundation, 419 Lake Ave., Storm Lake, IA 50588.
