Meredith Allan Nugent, 73


Greensburg Daily News

Greensburg — The last page was read and his book closed Saturday afternoon, Nov. 17, as Meredith Allan Nugent’s soul left his earthly body and ascended to the bright heavens beyond.

He was surrounded by the family that he built by hand and a love that no combination of words can do justice.

Meredith Allan graduated from St. Paul High School in 1956, the same year he married his high school sweetheart, Judith Anne Cole, on Thanksgiving Day. He gave 44 years of service to KCL Corporation in Shelbyville, retiring as plant engineer.

During his years on Earth, Meredith created a family as close-knit and as loving as any. He developed a love for gardening, for his land, his Harley Davidson, refinishing and caning chairs, golf cart rides with his Red Dog, reading novels, Wednesday Goodwill shopping trips, Jack Daniels, hunting arrowheads, and a special knack for fishing the Flat Rock River.

He was preceded in death by his father and mother, Samuel Everett and Margaret Elizabeth (Hamilton) Nugent, four brothers and one sister.

He is survived by his wife, Judith Anne, daughter Margaret Elizabeth “Margie” (husband Max) Pollitt of St. Paul, son Meredith  “Bud” (wife Billie) Nugent Jr. of St. Paul, grandson Sam (wife Shannon), granddaughter Roxie (husband Gene), granddaughter Tiffany (husband Zach), six great-grandchildren: Lexie, Teagan, Addison, Channing, Korbin, and Jastin; his eldest sister Elsie Poe of New Albany and countless others who loved him dearly.

There will be no formal services, but his body will be returned to the Earth during a celebration of his life on a warm spring day when a West wind blows at his family farm near St. Omer.

He will forever live on in the hearts and minds of those who loved him most.

Arrangements were entrusted to Glenn E. George Funeral Home, St. Paul.
