"Our Mother Georgia Ascended to Heaven into the Arms of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ"
Georgia Mae Meeks, age 97, passed away peacefully on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at the White Oak Manor in York, South Carolina.
Miracles happen and Lives are changed when a Mom prays for her children... Georgia was a Prayer Warrior. She was diligent in her Prayers to her Lord about her children, her family, her Church, her friends, her Nation and its leaders.. Just about anything you can imagine that needed a Prayer said, Georgia Prayed for it. And for herself too as she had broad shoulders to carry the burdens of others to Jesus for them. And Jesus lightened her load by answering her Prayers.
Georgia was a Proud Lady who took care of herself up until the day she went to her Heavenly home to meet Jesus face to face.... What a glow she now must have, as she looks her best. Georgia was well prepared because she knew her Bible. She taught Sunday School for 39 years and there's no telling how many lives were changed and strengthened through her teachings. Selfishly, her family and friends will miss Georgia, but they understand she wouldn't want to come back because she's where she's always wanted to be. And she has laid the path for her children and friends to follow.
Those who are left behind to cherish her memories and carry on her legacy are her daughter: Carolyn Carswell; four sons and daughters in law: Roger Dale and Catherine Meeks of Clover, South Carolina; Billy James and Diane Meeks of Gastonia, North Carolina, Lange and Debbie Meeks of Clover, South Carolina, Skipper and Nancy Meeks of Clover, South Carolina; Son in law: Bill Saunders (husband of Anita)
Georgia was the daughter of the late William Tullock and Tessie Johnson Tullock. She was also preceded in death by her loving husband of 38 years, Lange Meeks, Sr along with two daughters, Patricia Meeks and Anita Saunders.

When I was 12, Grandma Meeks took me to Sunday evening church with her and as we sat there listening to the service being preached I felt God talking to me, I was afraid to go alone to the front and I asked Grandma if she would go with me , she didn't hesitate she helped me go up there and prayed with me and all the others that excepted Jesus as our Lord and Savior that night. To watch her in Prayer Warrior mode was a wonderful sight. I know she is doing that for all of us right now with Jesus.

I was 13 when my great grandmother Meeks asked me to go to the store with her. She wanted to find her favorite candy, chocolate orange sticks. I end up crawling on the floor of Walmart, so I could see the bottom shelf just to find that candy for her. It toke us 45 minutes to find it. When we got back home she sat at her kitchen table with me eating that candy swinging her legs and giggling like a little girl. After that day I would look for that candy just so I could buy it for her. I would buy 5 or 6 boxes at a time and she would call me right after getting those boxes of candy laughing saying she eat almost all of them. Every time she called me, I would think of her swinging her legs and giggling like a little girl. I will always miss those phone calls and hearing her laughter.
