Joanne Harsh  Meredith
Joanne Harsh Meredith, of St. Augustine FL, was called home to be with her LORD on Monday, September 16, 2019. Joanne was born in Cape Girardeau, Missouri on June 17, 1943 to the late Bert and Doris Harsh. Her family moved to Mundelein, Illinois when she was very young, and lived there until 1951 when they moved to Moultrie, where her father was instrumental in reactivating Spence Air Base. Joanne attended Georgia College and State University before beginning work as a Delta Airlines flight attendant. It was in this role that she met her husband-to-be, John Meredith, at the Kansas City Airport. They were married on November 30, 1968 at the Presbyterian Church in Moultrie, Georgia. They lived in South Carolina for many years before moving to St Johns County, Florida in 1996.
Joanne was an active member of Anastasia Baptist Church in St. Augustine where she was an enthusiastic volunteer in the AWANA program for many years, as well as a life-group leader. Joanne truly loved spending time with her family, church ministry, sewing, and bird-watching (especially "her" bluebirds, enjoying at times 2 families flitting around her feeders!)
She was preceded in death by her grandparents, her parents Bert and Doris Harsh and her twin sister Judianne.
Joanne is survived by her husband of 50 years, John Meredith; daughters Amanda Rudeen and Elizabeth Mickler (Sid) both of St Augustine; sisters Dianne Harsh Klar (Henry) and Suzanne Harsh Christensen (Andrew) both of Moultrie Georgia; grandchildren MerryAshley, Grace Dianne. Tayler Anne, and Sid "Bear"; great-granddaughter Aubree Grace.
A celebration of Joanne's life will be held at 10am Friday, September 20, 2019 at Anastasia Baptist Church in St Augustine. A graveside service will be held at a later date at Pinecrest Memory Gardens in Moultrie. In lieu of flowers, donations in Joanne's memory can be made to: Breast Cancer Support Group, c/o Teresa Dillinger, 603 Mariposa Street, St. Augustine, Florida 32080, or to Pink up the Pace, P.O. Box 840219, St. Augustine, Florida 32080.
