I will always remember Aunt Meredith as a loving, kind, and generous woman who always entertained or hosted a dinner any time we came home to see the family. She was my Confirmation sponsor and has always been close to my heart. I will always remember us sitting in the coliseum and proudly being by my side as we celebrated and I was confirmed as Joy Marie Angela Heiting. I will always have a piece of her that will always be cherished. I love you and miss you. God has called another angel home. Our Angel, Meredith Meloy.

To Tim and Jeff, I was very sad to hear that Meredith had passes away. She was one of the most giving and accepting person I have ever know. I met Meredith from knowing her son, Keith. Even after Keith passed away, we kept in touch for over 20 years. I know we will all miss her, especially her wonderful cooking. Meredith was a great cook, and cooking was her passion. Some of the best meals I ever had were when we sat down to eat dinner at the Meloy's home. With Sympathy, Stephen Dokoupil Chicago, IL

My favorite memory of grandma was the past seven or eight years we would come over every Sunday and would watch the Packer game. This house would get so loud with us hollering at the TV. Now when we come over and watch the games, Katie, Tim, the kids, and I will have to make more noise to make up for her absence. We will deeply miss her and knowing that she is in a better place.

Meredith was a wonderful older sister. Her generous giving spirit helped me learn so much, especially about preparing food. She loved to travel and visited with us in South Carolina on frequent occasions. Her encouragement and positive attitude gave me zeal to always plunge forward in my endeavors. Her love for God inspired me and kept me walking with the Lord each day. The memories I have of this dear sister will always stay with me. In return, each day I will pray that she will have eternal rest with the Lord.
