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.

    I was so shocked this morning to recieve the news of Meredith's death and then to read it in print. A flood of memories come back from high school and the past years. Meredith was a beautiful girl, with the prettiest dimples, and a smile that would light up the room, and with a little encouragement we could really cause a disturbance in the classroom. Even years later I would run into her, she would always ask about my daughters, my mother and brother. I always enjoyed talking to Meredith and hearing about the childern. Thank goodness for our memories and the smiles that they bring to our heart. My prayers are with the Current and Herzog family. May god give you strenght. Linda class of 1966
