There will be no formal services for Meg. The family asks that you remember her in your own special way.
Meg was employed by Teachers Credit Union as an ATM processor for several years prior to her retirement at the age of 62. In her spare time, she enjoyed traveling annually with her husband to Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. She was also an adventurous soul who enjoyed walking on the beach, zip-lining and parasailing in Myrtle Beach and at the local zip line park at Rum Village in South Bend. She was also an animal lover, especially her cats Kirby and Shadow.
Most of all, Meg loved her family, whether it was spending time with them going to the movies or just spending time together at home.
