Visitation will be held Wednesday, February 10, at St. James of the Valley Church, 411 Springfield Pike, Wyoming, Ohio, from 3:30 PM until Memorial Mass honoring her at 5:00 PM. Mea was a member of the Glendale Garden Club and owned her own business, Squirrels Embroidery. Mea was very touched by the plight of the people of Haiti following the earthquake.
