Meda May Rapoza, 92, of Bayview Manor, passed away July 19, 2020, at Waldo County General Hospital.

She was born to William Phillips  and Nellie (Gray) Phillips in Belfast Oct. 4, 1927. She married Antone Rapoza Jr. in 1945 and they lived together for 49 years in Belfast.

Meda is survived by her two children, Michael Rapoza and wife Sharon of Northport and Annette Howard of Searsport; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; and her special friends, Charles Gilmore, Nancy and Greg.

Meda was predeceased by her parents, her husband in 1994 and a son, Tony Rapoza, in 2014 and her four sisters and five brothers, and very special friend Ginny Clark.

She worked many years at the shoe factory in Belfast and then at Penobscot Poultry for a short time before working at Harbor Hill in Belfast for over 20 years. She retired at the age of 82.

Meda loved to play bingo, her scratch-off tickets and pull-tabs. She loved going to Hollywood Slots Casino playing the slot machines. Meda also loved to read when she wasn't playing bingo.

Meda will be missed and loved by many.

Because of the pandemic, services will be held next spring.
