Meg’s family and friends meant everything to her. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother “Mimi”, daughter, and sister. Meg cherished all of the many friendships she had over her lifetime. She had an incredible ability to build deep, solid bonds, making connections at every point in life. She was generous, genuine, and personable. She was devoted in her faith and was a living example of extending the love of God beyond herself. She was most at peace on the beaches of the Outer Banks and enjoyed long walks in the surf and the sand between her toes.
