Mary Ellen Gantt Arell

December 6, 1952 — November 27, 2023

Mary Ellen "Meg" Gantt Arell 12/6/52-11/27/23

Meg Arell passed away peacefully on November 27, 2023 after a brief illness. She was predeceased by her parents, Ronnie and Joanne Gantt and is survived by her son, Cie (Emily), Grand Dog Lucy; sister, Miriam Gantt Coffman (Wayne); brother, Ronnie Gantt (Laurie) and her niece, nephews and great nephew.

Meg was born in Columbia, South Carolina and moved to Missouri shortly after graduating from college. She worked in the health industry as an X-ray technician and occupational therapist. An avid sports enthusiast; Meg played softball in high school and transitioned her love of sports to her adored son "Cieman." Her life can best be explained by the poem from the United Baseball Parents of America - "If you give a boy a baseball . . ."

Meg was a very resilient person overcoming many medical adversities - she was brave, courageous and a very kind and loving mother, sister, aunt and friend.

Special thanks to her medical cadre of doctors and nurses and many loving thanks to her daughter-in-law, Emily, who helped navigate her care and comfort.
