Obituary of Ksenia Lee Meeder (Thomas)
Ksenia was born in Calgary on December 21, 1964 and passed away unexpectedly in Calgary at the age of 55 years. Ksenia grew up in Acadia and graduated from Lord Beaverbrook High School in 1982. She moved to Nashville, TN in 1995 with her first husband Brian Thomas and their three children. In what turned out to be the last year of Ksenia’s life, she returned to Calgary and serendipitously bought her childhood home in Acadia. Ksenia was an avid and accomplished seamstress, gardener, and cook. She was also a third degree blackbelt in Taekwondo and won many awards and tournaments. She was very active, enjoyed the outdoors and you could often find her backpacking, mountaineering, or rock/ice climbing. Her favourite activities took her around the world -- with her second husband, Dr. John Romersa -- and they were always planning their next adventure. She was especially proud of when they travelled to Nepal on their mountaineering expeditions. She will be dearly missed and lovingly remembered by her three children, Brianne (Brad), Gretchen, and Graham. She is also survived by her parents, Joe (Gloria) Meeder and Julia Meeder; her only sister, Shanta (Wayne), nephew Cory and niece Kyla. She will forever hold a special place in her Uncle Andrew’s heart. She also leaves her dog Thunder, the father of her children Brian, and many other family members and friends across multiple countries. A celebration of life will be held at a later date, but due to ongoing Covid restrictions, attendees will be asked to register in advance. Please email if you wish to be notified of the date and place. To honour Ksenia, please consider a donation in her name to a charity that she supported, the Calgary Drop-In Centre. You can donate at Rest in sweet lasting peace, Ksenia. You may be gone but you’ll never be forgotten.
