Meredith Blaine Sweat Zerr was born September 28, 1981 in Moore County to
Rodney Sweat and Janice Hardy. She graduated from Union Pines High School
in 1999, and FTCC in 2002 with an AAS in Surgical Technology.

Most of her childhood was spent in or near Moore County, where her
extensive family lived. Meredith loved her family with an unconditional
love, and was a big kid at heart. She had a beautiful smile, a big heart,
and loved to laugh.

She shared a special bond with her only niece, Emma who she nicknamed
"Booger." Watching movies over and over, and laughing at the silliest
things are special memories that Emma will cherish about her "Auntie M."

Meredith married her soulmate Edwin Zerr on May 13, 2017, and began her
Army wife adventure, which she embraced and cherished. Edwin and Meredith
added to their loving home, a 4 legged "child" named Ellie.

Edwin and Meredith were stationed in San Antonio for 15 months while Edwin
earned his nursing degree with the US Army. While there, they attended
Pearl Street Church, and were baptized on August 26, 2018. In June of
this year, the Army relocated them to Fort Lewis in Tacoma, Washington.
Meredith raved about the beautiful Washington state landscape and the
cooler climate.

Meredith is survived by her husband, Edwin Zerr, her loving pet, Ellie, of
Tacoma; her parents Rodney Sweat and Janice Hardy, of Carthage; sister
Jessica Sweat Mann and niece Emma Mann, of Whitsett; and step-mother, Carol
Holton, step-brother, James Lunaas, step-sister Megan Lunaas, and many,
many loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and special friends.

A celebration of life for family and friends will be held at First Baptist
Church of Pinehurst on Wednesday at 11:00 AM, with internment immediately
thereafter at Cross Hill Cemetery in Carthage, NC. Visitation will be at
the home of Rodney Sweat, 1725 Dowd Road, on Tuesday from 6:00-8:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, gifts in memory of Meredith may be made to: Crohn's &
Colitis Foundation, National Headquarters, ATTN: Financial Operations, 733
Third Avenue, Ste. 510, New York, NY 10017
