Our loving mother, Ana Isabel Meade-Araúz - our angel - was born in Anton, Province of Cocle in the Republic of Panama on July 2, 1936 to parents; Segunda Urrunga and Tomas Araúz.

Ana made the journey to Norfolk, Virginia from Panama in June of 1973.

Look to the hills where your help come from, I will be in the midst: Ana leaves her legacy and memories with her children; Pedro Serrano, Elizabeth Meade, Jorge Meade Jr., Monique Tate, Ivette Meade, her eighteen grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren, sister-in-law Pamela Peters, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins, and a host of friends, near and far.

Ana was preceded in death by her parents; Segunda and Tomas, in-laws George and Modesta Black, three sisters, and two brothers.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.

He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.

Abuela will definitely be missed. I loved her as my own mother. My prayers are towards the family during this time and season of your personal journey as mommy has began her own in HEAVEN. Grace and Peace be multiplied unto you all from God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
