1928-2015
Edwina Ezell Meador passed away peacefully in her home December 20, 2015. She has "gone home" to be with the love of her life for 60 years, Raymond. Today they are dancing again in Heaven. Edwina was born January 24, 1928 in Ward, Alabama, to Claude and Fredrica Ezell. She has one surviving sister, Elizabeth Sutton of Indiana. Ray and Edwina found their way to Pensacola in 1954. Edwina was a dedicated home-maker, Mother and wife with a passion for growing flowers. Raymond was with the school system 42 years and Edwina worked part-time as a substitute teacher at Warrington Middle. Together they raised 4 children: Chip (Susan) Meador--Corpus Christi TX, Suzanne (Ryan) Rathje--Parthenon AR, Sherri (Albert) Ward--Pace FL and Sandi (Jeff) Robertson--Oak Ridge TN. Meemee's favorite endeavor was loving her 9 grandchildren. Each one has a special place in her heart and stories to tell. AJ, Allen, Carmen, Jacy, Danielle, Jeremy, Heidi, Emily and Brian will continue to make their Meemee proud. Edwina was a member of Myrtle Grove Baptist Church and lived her faith for all to see. She embodies the true spirit of compassion, generosity and unconditional love. She had a delightful Southern charm, a zest for life and an enduring heart of gold. She dearly loved her family, friends and neighbors. Edwina's legacy will live on in many hearts. We are so grateful for the love of friends along the way. She loved you all and you know who you are. Special thanks are extended to her dedicated grandson, Allen, who resided with his Meemee the last few years and kept her spirits high. Thank you to her loving caregiver, Gretchen Shields, who gave the family peace of mind. Thank you, Dr. Amos Prevatt for years of vigilant care and friendship. The family will receive friends on Sunday, December 27, 2015 from 11:00 am until the 1:00 pm funeral service at Pensacola Memorial Gardens Funeral Home. Burial will follow in Pensacola Memorial Gardens. Pastor Ron Christian is officiating. The family asks that you honor Edwina with acts of kindness in the coming year. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Covenant Hospice of Pensacola.
