Meghan Elizabeth Liddy
October 20, 1993 – November 2, 2018
Meghan Elizabeth Liddy was born on October 20, 1993, to parents Maryann and David Liddy. She grew up in Wheaton, Illinois. She had made her home in Kumasi, Ghana for the last five years. Meghan felt her calling early: Love God, Love Others and Reach the World. In sixth grade, she attended Wheaton Bible youth group and at a very early age began to invest in missions. It was never a question as to whether Meghan was going on a mission trip during the summer, but which one? She never asked her family for money. She raised funds locally and across the world to support her passions.
She attended Whittier Grade School, Edison Elementary, Wheaton Academy, and was a graduate of Wheaton Warrenville South High School, Class of 2012.
Her love for others quickly took her International and ultimately to Kumasi, Ghana where she fostered biological sisters, Rhoda (now 11) and Priscilla (now 8). They later opened their hearts to Douglas the dog and within the last few months opened their hearts to Baby Kofi. Baby Kofi preceded Meghan in death on Tuesday October 30, 2018.
Meghan co-founded Family First Ghana—a non-profit, Non-Government Organization located in Kumasi, Ghana, West Africa. Family First is a charitable organization that is passionate about supporting families who have children with complex medical needs and disabilities in Kumasi, Ghana.
Meghan contracted malaria, developed significant complications, and went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Friday, November 2, 2018.
Meghan is survived by parents, Maryann Hume Liddy and David Liddy; brother, Robert of Chicago, IL. She was preceded in death by maternal grandmother, Jean Cisler and husband Rich; paternal grandfather, Robert Liddy and his surviving wife Lois and her childhood dog Nugget. She is further survived by grandparents, Mike and Lori Hume of Las Vegas, NV; maternal aunt, Trisha and Miles Steele of Gretna, NE; maternal uncle, Michael and Sue Hume of Great Falls, MT; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends all over the US and internationally.
