Homeless girls’ advocate dies after aneurysm

Tributes are pouring in for a Calgary woman who was known for changing the lives of many young Calgary girls by helping to get them off the streets.

Calgary artist and YWCA Humanitarian of the Year award winner Marsha Ellen Meidow, 34, passed away Wednesday after suffering a brain aneurysm.

Hundreds of her friends, family, and strangers touched by her “selfless work” paid respects to Meidow’s Facebook page after learning the news.

Local radio personality James Callsen was one of many people who knew Meidow and said the outpouring of support speaks for itself in what an “amazing” person Meidow was.

“She was an eternal cheerleader. I don’t know anyone who had the respect, love and good reputation that she did. Calgary lost a major leader and cornerstone,” he said.
