Ernest Meador

Ernest “Ernie “ Meador, 91, of Walnut Hill, passed away Monday Sept. 30, 2013, at St. Mary’s Good Samaritan Hospital in Centralia.

He was born June 24, 1922, in Iuka, the son of Alfred and Ethel (Michael) Meador. He married Leona (Payne) April 26, 1980, in Ashley, and she survives in Walnut Hill.

In addition to his wife Leona, Ernie is survived by daughters, Karen Winkler and husband Steve of Dix and Sharon Woodward and husband Roy of Salem; one son, Gary Oliver and wife Lynn of Lenoire, N.C.; five grandchildren, Makayla Winkler of Dix, Lisa James and husband Gordon of Scottsdale, Ariz., Larry Woodward and wife Marjorie of Salem, Nancy Oliver of Bettendorf, Iowa and Chrissy Roberts and husband Darrell of Kings Mountain, N.C.; 11 great-grandchildren; three sisters, Opal Hawkins of Kell, Viola Donoho of Walnut Hill and Mildred Dial of Iuka; and one very special young neighbor, Desiree Smith of Walnut Hill.

Ernie was preceded in death by his first wife Lilly; sister, Velma Richards; infant sister; and by one grandchild.

Mr. Meador was a heavy equipment operator and had worked for many years for the White Construction Company until his retirement. He was of the Pentecostal faith and an avid St. Louis Cardinal’s fan. He loved living in the country and taking care of his lawn and home. Most of all he loved his wife, his children and grandchildren.

Funeral services for Ernest “Ernie” Meador will be held at 1 p.m. Thursday at the L. R. Osborn & Son Funeral Home with the Pastor Larry Rhodes officiating. Burial will follow at the Palestine Cemetery near Kell.
