October 1, 1930 — March 31, 2024

Willie Lee Meadows, age 93, of Whitley City, Kentucky departed from this life on March 31, 2024, Easter Sunday at the Williamsburg Nursing Home. 

 She was born October 1, 1930, in Stearns, Kentucky to the late James William “Bill” and Nancy Strunk.
In addition to her parents, Willie is preceded in death by her husband of more than fifty years, Ledford Meadows; daughter, Debbie Ann Meadows Gibson; son-in-law, Joe Byrd; sister, Gertie Mae Strunk; brother, Vernon “Bulldog” Strunk.

When she was young, she worked at the Stearns Motel and later for the Shirt Factory, where she retired.  She was a hard worker, an awesome cook, she enjoyed her flowers, sewing and making her own curtains, yard sales and thrift stores, but her greatest pleasure was spending time with her family that she loved dearly. Willie was a member of the East Stearns Church of God.  She will always be loved, never forgotten and forever missed.
