Christmas Eve morning our dear Dad passed into the arms of his Heavenly Father.
Meade E. Kramer was born on April 10, 1927, on a farm in rural McAlisterville, to the late Earl and Sallie (Beaver) Kramer. He married the former Evalene Bailey on Dec. 2, 1944, who preceded him in death on Oct. 19, 2015. Their marriage of almost 71 years was one of love and total devotion to each other.
The life Meade lived was a wonderful example to all who knew him. He is survived by sons and daughters-in-law, Terry and Pam and Barry and Jean, of Beaver Springs. He was a loving grandfather to Tonya and her husband Brent Brugler, Tara and her husband Travis Paige, Joe and his wife Lesa, and Jennifer and her husband Timothy Powell. He adored his great-grandchildren Bailey, Tessa and Talya Brugler, Rayna, Griffen and Eva Paige, Joseph Kramer, Kristie, John Daniel, and Karlee Powell, and step-granddaughter, Autumn Young. Meade is also survived by a brother, Leon and his wife Madeline, of Mifflin; and sister-in-law, Helen M. Knepp, of Beaver Springs; and nieces and nephews.
In addition to his wife, Meade was preceded in death by a son in infancy, Bobby; brothers, Dick and Wayne; and granddaughter, Christina Marie and husband John Furgison.
