Meldra Leola Reed was born August 2, 1932, in Macon GA, the youngest child of Thomas Orie (T.O.) and Lillian Reed.

They were married April 4, 1952, and lived in Mountain Home, ID, and Lawrence, KS, before settling in Overland Park in 1959.
Meldra found joy in being a wife, mother and grandmother, and will be missed by many. She was a terrific southern cook, decorator, and conversationalist. She had a sense of humor that will be missed by her family and friends.
Meldra was preceded in death by her parents, brothers William Reed (Charlotte, NC) and Herman "Bubby" Reed (Atlanta), sisters Betty June Hansford (Dayton, OH) and Annelle Morgan (Macon, GA), former husband Keith Moore, and first born child, Melissa Ann Moore.

Also surviving is her sister, Chris Stevenson of Lawrenceville, GA, sister-in-law Benita Reed of Charlotte, brother-in-law Charles Morgan of Macon, and numerous nieces and nephews. (Arr.: Mt.
