Dedria Ruth Meeker, 27, of Covington Twp., passed away on Sunday, June 6, 2021.
Born in East Stroudsburg, she was the daughter of Shannon Marie (Hall) and Freddie Strausser of Covington Twp. Dee graduated from North Pocono High School in 2013. She loved spending time with her family and friends, just hanging out anywhere or sitting by a bonfire making memories. Dee cherished the time that she spent with her nieces and nephews and looked forward to their next visit together. She couldn't wait to go outside; whether casting a line for her next catch, taking a walk in the woods, driving around listening to music, especially her favorite song, Suga Boom Boom, or riding a quad or dirt bike. Dee cheered on the Philadelphia Eagles.
As a loyal friend, Dee was always there when she was needed and when she loved, she loved hard. She had a glimmer about her that matched her bright personality. Dee had fiery red hair and bright blue eyes that along with her personality, made her UNFORGETTABLE.
Dee is also survived by her siblings, Michelle Meeker and Dex Kulp, of Thornhurst Twp.; Shelby Strausser and Shaun Hayes, of Carbondale; Megan Strausser and Shawn Helman, of Gouldsboro; Adam Strausser and Carol Henry, of Gouldsboro; Lucas Guenst and Alicia Meade, of Covington Twp.; and Leonna Guenst and Cory Murphy, of Moscow; her maternal grandmother, Bonnie Hall and Ralph Garcia, of Thornhurst Twp.; her nieces and nephews, Dex, Declan, McKenzie, Nadia, Avery and Zane. She was preceded in death by her fiancé, Ivan Gonzalez Jr.
