90-year-old owner is the spirit that keeps Waterloo business going

Posted: Updated:
WATERLOO (KWWL) -

Running and owning a business isn't easy...

Imagine trying to do that when you're 90 years old.

Berniece Meyers just turned 90. For years, Berniece and her husband ran  Meyers Nursery on Independence in Waterloo. 

Sadly, her husband died years ago. But Berniece still works hard to keep the store running every week.

She helps make wreaths and helps manage the front desk. Making bows is her specialty!. 

Berniece is known in the community for always calling people "honey," no matter what they look like. Even Mayor Hart enjoys her kind greeting! 

Meyers Nursery is a three-generation business. Berniece's father-in-law started the business. Then Berniece and her husband took over. Now, Berniece, her two daughters, and her daughter-in-law run the store.
