Meredith Herzog Current

Meredith Herzog Current, of Holden Beach, NC, passed away peacefully in her sleep Wednesday, November 7, 2007. Meredith was born March 8, 1948 in St. Joseph, Missouri. Although she was not born on the North Carolina coast, she got here as quickly as she could.

Meredith was preceded in death by her mother Aditha Niemeyer, whom she adored and who will surely be waiting at the gate of heaven to welcome her home.

She is survived by her husband Bob Current, Holden Beach, and their three children and their families, Summer and Rich Roberts and daughter Esmé, Durham, NC, Zachary and Melissa Current and children Elijah and Isabela, Charlotte, NC, and Temple Current and son Edan, Holden Beach, NC. She is also survived by her father William E. Herzog and wife Trish, Tracy, MO, and brothers Randy and Stan Herzog of St. Joseph, MO, as well as, ten nieces and nephews.

Meredith’s good sense of humor, warmth and sincerity will be deeply missed by those fortunate to have known her. Over the course of Meredith’s life she cultivated many interests and talents, often to perfection. She loved her husband very much and she will be missed greatly by him. She was a loving and adventurous mother. During Meredith’s time in Holden Beach, she enjoyed listening to her wind chimes, the breeze rustling her palm trees and looking out onto the ocean.

Meredith graduated from Missouri Western State College, St. Joseph, MO and at one time was a very active member of Coastline Rescue Squad. She is a member of Sharon United Methodist Church and All Saint’s Sunday School Class. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, daughter, sister, aunt and friend.

The family will receive friends at 11:00 AM, Tuesday, November 13, 2007 at Sharon United Methodist Church, Holden Beach, where a Memorial Service will be led by Reverend Eddie Hill at 12 noon.

Following the service, interment will be at sea.

In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made to Sharon UMC Building Fund, 2030 Holden Beach Road, Supply, NC 28462 or Coastline Rescue Squad, P O Box 24, Supply, NC 28462.

    Summer, Zach and Temple, So very sorry to hear of your loss, I know you all loved your mother very much. I have many fun memories of our time together. I often have thought of Meredith when I open a 2 liter bottle of Diet Pepsi. That's so funny I know but it reminds me of her in the mornings sitting on the bar stool drinking her Diet Pepsi. Remember we weren't allowed to drink her morning caffeine? Funny how now I am the same way with my own kids. Odd the memories we have as we get older. Hope you are all well otherwise. We'll be thinking of you and our prayers are with you. Sybil And Brent

    I was a friend of hers in college. She hosted many a study group. I can't tell you kids enough about respecting our time hitting the books. Meredith was a ray of sunshine, one could just feel the warmth radiating from her. I feel very priviledged to have known her. Family,know your loss is understood and you have my deapest sympathy. The world has lost a great person.
