Loida Lafaye Springmeyer

November 7, 1938November 29, 2018

It is with deep sadness, the family of Loida “Edie” Lafaye Springmeyer, 80, of Woodstock, Georgia; formerly of Hendersonville, Tennessee and Cape Girardeau, Missouri, announces her passing on November 29, 2018. She was born November 7, 1938 in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. She married Harry Conrad Springmeyer, and together they had two daughters. She had a beautiful and creative spirit which transcended throughout the stages of her professional life. She began her career in art education and still counted her many students among her dearest friends. She took her creative talents in a different direction as the creator and owner of the Gingham Square which she owned for many years as a family business. Following the family moving to Hendersonville, TN, she continued her talents as an interior designer and real estate agent; counting many famous country music stars as her valued clients and friends. In 2014, she and Harry made the decision to retire to Woodstock, GA. Her greatest loves were her children, grandchildren, many friends spread across the nation, and her beloved grand-dogs. Loving survivors include two daughters, Brandi Springmeyer Greene (Colin) of Woodstock, Georgia, and Courtney Paige Riggsbee (Larry Preece) of Hendersonville, Tennessee; three grandchildren, Dalton Riggsbee, Harrison Greene and Avery Greene; one sister, Roberta Ulrich of Jackson, Missouri; nephews Gary Ulrich and Steven Ulrich, niece Sherry Ulrich Punches, many cousins and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, Harry Conrad Springmeyer and her parents, Wesley and Grace Cotner. A celebration of life will be planned at a later date to honor her life. In lieu of any gifts of flowers, the family would be honored if you would consider making a donation to Tranquility Hospice at Kennesaw Mountain, Marietta, Georgia who so lovingly cared for her during the final stages of her journey to Heaven. This can be done by using the link: . Under the “Tribute” section, my family would be honored if you would add in memory of our mother.
