Berlene was preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Virgil Lavoid Meek of Ada, Oklahoma.
Berlene liked to read all kinds of books but cherished reading her Bible. She was a member of First Baptist Church in Elmore City, Oklahoma.
She enjoyed her children and hated when school started because they wouldn't be home.
In her spare time she enjoyed water activities, camping, and fishing with friends and family. Berlene liked to cook, bake and decorate her home. Some of her favorite moments were sitting around the campfire out back and telling the grandkids and great-grandkids ghost stories.
In her own words: I have been blessed with the most loving, caring and giving kids anyone could wish for!! John is everything to me! He has been my lover, my best friend and confidant for thirty years! He has been a good provider. We have pulled together through the hard times and it has made the good times that much sweeter! He's still my best friend! I love him so much. God has blessed us with the ability to travel and see a lot of this wondrous country that HE made and we have marveled at the beautiful country we have seen together. We just couldn't live without God in our lives. He has done wonderful things for us.
