Her loving family and friends enriched Meredith’s life, as did her commitment to social justice. She enjoyed anthropology, nature, birds, art, writing and reading.

The family wishes to thank the Wesley Glen and Wesley Hospice family for their kindness and loving care of Mom during the last 14 years of her life.


“You - my tribe - have brought so much love and adventure into my life. I am so thankful for my family. Somewhere in this long life I have come to believe my religion is kindness and this is how I tried to live each day.”


A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, June 9 at 2:00 pm at the First Unitarian Universalist Church 93 W. Weisheimer Rd Columbus 43214 with a reception to follow. Meredith will be interred in the First Unitarian Universalist Church Memorial Garden.
