Remembering Professor Virginia Darden Meeks


Professor Meeks, or Ginny as she was known to most of us, was a colleague, mentor, friend, teacher and a terrific human being.  She made everyone feel comfortable and welcomed.  She laughed and made us laugh.  Her smile reached her eyes.  When she entered a room, it lit up.  She was beautiful inside and out.

She was a daughter, sister, mother, friend, a South Carolina native, and a devoted TarHeel.  Ginny taught taxes, estate planning and wills at the law school from 2010 onward.  Before then, she practiced law in Charleston at Evans, Carter, Kunes & Bennett.  Ginny had a B.A. from the University of North Carolina, a J.D. from the University of South Carolina, and an LL.M. from the University of Miami.

Despite her numerous professional accomplishments, her family, particularly her children, Nolen and Darden, were her pride and joy.

Yesterday she lost her fight with breast cancer.  Her sister, Sydney Fowler, broke the news on Ginny’s CaringBridge Journal.  Next week, the library will celebrate her life with an exhibit and make a book of condolences available for signature.

She will be missed.
