Mrs. Mead worked for several years as a caregiver for several area hospitals and families. A devout Christian, Mrs. Mead attended church faithfully for years, until her failing health prevented her from doing so. She loved Jesus, and loved to read her Bible and write down scriptures. Her hobbies included working in her years and she had a "green thumb" with plants. A true animal lover, she enjoyed the years she had with her beloved dog Rascal.
