“Our Trooper”Born November 11, 1931 to Sidney and Florence Meadows. She is the 9th of 12 children.While working for Condies Food, she met Joe Medel. She was not very fond of him and when he showed up at her house, she asked him, “what the hell are you doing here?”, and 56+ years later they were still together. They had two children, a boy and a girl, because that is all they made.Survived by Husband, Joe; Son, Tony; Daughter, Tina (Hodgson); Son-in-Law, Curtis; Grandson, Cody; and Sisters, Mid and Elsie.Lois battled cancer since 1974—she never questioned it. She faced each challenge with a smile; making others feel better when she should have allowed them to comfort her.She loved family more than anything. Her favorite journey was to Wendover.We shed tears for our loss, but not for her new journey.Graveside services will be Monday, April 4, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. at Elysian Burial Gardens, 1075 East 4580 South, Salt Lake City.In lieu of flowers, please take someone to lunch.
