August 6, 1935 - August 9, 2022

It is with heavy hearts that the children of Philomena Meade, announce her passing at the Placentia Health Centre on August 9, 2022, at the age of 87.

She is predeceased by husband Ned (2010); parents William and Mary Griffiths; brothers Patrick, Bill, Ben, Leo, Andrew, Edward and Ron; sisters-in-law Bernadette and Cecelia; and special son-in-law Francis Webber. Also remembering her mother and father-in-law Robert and Lucy Meade; sisters-in-law Hannah, Lucy, Mary, Carmel, Thomasine, Monica, Bernadette and Sylvia; and brother-in-law Adrian.

She will be lovingly remember by her 6 children Ned (Darlene), Marylou (Francis – deceased), Sheila (Rick), Wanda (Dave), Wayne (Margie) and Rob (Daisy); her grandchildren Ryan, Noah, John, Grace, Matthew and Claire; and sister-in-law Marg Griffiths.  Also leaving to mourn her loss, the Meade Family:  Jack (Patricia), Gordon (Rose Marie), Eddy and Bob (Jane).

Mom was a kind, caring and giving person who also put the needs of her family before her own.  Mom faced every challenge in life with courage and faith in God.  She will be remembered as a selfless, faithful wife, mother and grandmother, who always had a smile even when times were difficult.  Mom was a woman of great Catholic faith and it’s this faith that saw her through dark times in her  life and she instilled this faith in us, her children, leading by example and always choosing to do the right thing.

Special thanks to Dr. Hiba and the nursing staff at Placentia Health Centre for the exceptional care and compassion shown to mom.
