Meding migrated to the United States in June 1959 with her husband, Agustin, who was in the U.S. Navy, along with their five children; at that time Lourdes was 14, Tessie 12, Rey 9, Alice 8, and Eddie 5. Two more children were added to the family with the birth of Joe in 1962 and Tony in 1969. Meding was a strong woman that carried the responsibilities and pressures of being a military wife. She was an exceptional wife and mother that took charge during the times her husband was periodically away overseas. She held the family together through numerous military relocations to different cities. She had a passion for cooking Filipino dishes and desserts mastering them with her unique flair. For a few years, Meding was employed at The North Face, Inc. as a seamstress. She also loved gardening especially tending to her roses and growing vegetables.
Meding is survived by her daughters: Teresita (Art) Posas, Alice (Rey) Estacio; and sons: Rey (Zen) Morales, Eddie (Ginny) Morales, Joe (Maggie) Morales, and Tony Morales.
