Rosa Maxine Nelson Meeks

Rosa Maxine Nelson Meeks entered Heaven on May 27, 2022. “Biddy”, as she was known to most was born on January 2, 1950 to John and Mary Ellen Withrow Nelson in Ashland, Ky. In addition to her parents, Biddy is preceded in death by her husband Mike Meeks, a brother, Art Nelson, grandchildren, Hunter Meeks, Larra Nelson, and Rainey Nelson and a great-grand child Ryker Littleton-Ridge. She was a mother to six children, Larry (Kim) Nelson and Michael Nelson of Catlettsburg, Ky., Julia (Jason) Cox of Richmond, TX., Mark (Robin) Nelson, Leighann White, and Jonce (Melissa) Meeks of Ashland, Ky. Although she was “Biddy” to most, she was “Granny” to 17 grand-children and 13 great-grandchildren that she loved with all her heart. Additional survivors include a brother, John Nelson of Pedro, OH., and sisters, Louise Osborne and Claudia Copley of Catlettsburg, Ky., and Jennifer Warnock of Flatwoods, Ky. Biddy always had an open door for anyone and would give you anything she had. Her kind and caring heart was the reason she was very much loved by anyone she came in contact with. Biddy will be greatly missed by all and will continue to lookout for everyone from above. Services will be from 5:00 – 7:00 PM, Wednesday at Rollins Funeral Home, 1822 Chestnut Street, Kenova, WV.
