Her memory will be cherished by her aunt and uncle, Karen and Nico Belli; her favorite cousin, Enzo Belli; and her grandparents, Dick and Gail Sharp and Mario Simeone. Holding dear her memory will also be her stepdad, Richard Maines; and her many friends in Huntsville and Cullman.
Ms. Meade-Pruitt received her bachelor’s degree at UAB and was scheduled to receive her master’s degree in psychology in May.
