September 7, 1935 - April 10, 2022
Augusta, GA – Entered into eternal rest on Palm Sunday, April 10, 2022, Irene Katherine Meadows, 86, wife of Clyde Meadows for 64 years. Irene was born in Munich, Germany in 1935, the daughter of Josef Stoepfel and Elisabeth Eder. She met and married her beloved husband Clyde Wilson Meadows in Munich in 1958. After traveling the world together, they selected Augusta as their forever home in 1965 because the people of Augusta were so undeniably friendly. She was a proud naturalized citizen of the United States. Irene worked for 30 years as a Kindergarten Paraprofessional with the Richmond County Schools, mostly at Bungalow Road Elementary School. She was a forty-two-year member of First Presbyterian Church and a member of the Trinity Sunday School class. Irene loved children, both her own and the ones she had the privilege to teach. She was known as a dignified and private person. She loved to watch people, was kind to strangers and was fiercely devoted to her family. Irene loved long chats over good cups of coffee. She had the strength and wisdom of someone who has endured and overcome many challenges. She knew how to let the little things go so that she could hold the big things close. Irene was always there when the people she loved went home and her family has every confidence that she will be waiting in Heaven for us when we also get to our eternal home. Those who knew her will never forget her laugh and her distinctive German-Southern accent. Irene was amazing. Family members in addition to her husband include, her sons: Clyde, Jr. (Laura) of Tampa, Florida, and John (Becky) of The Woodlands, Texas; three grandsons: Clyde III, Charlie, and William; many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents and all siblings. A memorial service will be held Thursday, June 16, 2022, at 11:00 A.M. at the sanctuary of First Presbyterian Church, 642 Telfair Street, Augusta GA, 30901.
