June 1, 1949 ~ May 26, 2013
Meredith Owen Bricker known to all as "MO", fought a valiant effort, but found new comfort with her God on Sunday morning, May 26, 2013 at Northeast Baptist Hospital in San Antonio, Texas. She was born June 1, 1949 in San Antonio, Texas and was adopted, raised by Inez & Harry Hartley of McAllen, Texas. Meredith attended Saint Mary's Hall and The University of Texas. Mo was preceded in death by both of her parents and is survived by her husband of over 20 years, Frederick Bricker, her daughter Brook Owen Rojas, her brother, Leonard Hartley of Colorado, Teddie & Monte Hartley of Veniat Oklahoma and many other friends throughout the United States, Canada and Cancun, Mexico. Meredith was fiercely spirited and independent, never hesitant to speak her mind, sharing her wisdom and love with her many friends and loved ones. Meredith's best friend was her devoted daughter, Brook Owen Rojas. Brook and her mother shared everything and the relationship remained steadfast throughout her illness, Brook was her strength and pride. Mo was a volunteer and a sustaining member of the Junior League of San Antonio. Her spirit and dedication to serving her community will be remembered by many. The Junior League Rummage Sale was a particular passion of hers as she loved meeting the people she was serving and was committed to continuing the traditions and efforts of the institution of "Rummage." The countless volunteers that she mentored and people she helped will remember her eternally. She also spent over 15 years with Scobey Moving & Storage. She found Cancun, Mexico as a second home and was known throughout the resort as Mama Teresa. Mo's month in Cancun was the highlight of her year. Her words "Are You Ready" during her beloved water volleyball will forever bring a smile to many faces. The friends she acquired in Mexico were an important part of her and she will be remembered by those friends always. A celebration of her life will be held at 12 Noon 5/31/2013 at St. Pius X Catholic Church on Harry Wurzbach Blvd. To leave a note for the family please visit meadowlawn.net, obituaries.
