Services for Meredith Tregarthen, a Californian who founded a group for terminally ill children while living in Maryland, will be held at 11 a.m. today at St. James-by-the-Sea Episcopal Church in La Jolla, Calif.
Miss Tregarthen, who was 20 and lived in San Diego, died Monday of heart disease at a hospital there.
A native of Long Beach, Calif., who lived in Bel Air, Md., for about eight years in the late 1970s and the 1980s, she attended the Southampton Middle School there.
She and a counselor started Attitude of Healing in Towson while she was living in Bel Air.
In June, she graduated from the San Diego High School.
She is survived by her parents, Michael W. and Mary Tregarthen of San Diego; a sister, Michelle Sedlak of Dundalk; her grandfather, J. D. Duke of Long Beach; and her great-grandmother, Pearl Duke, of Long Beach.
The family suggested memorial contributions to the Make A Wish Foundation in Denver, which fulfills wishes for terminally ill children.
