Dear Kevin and Cassie, We were sad to read about your mother's death in the Macon paper. What a beautiful obituary for such an inspiring person. I know the service for her will be full of good memories, especially with a family member leading the services. I wish we could be there to speak to you in person and to hold those beautiful girls. May God bless you in these tender days. We think about the 4 of you lovingly and fondly. Creede and Bonnie

I was saddened to read of Nancy's death today. Though we had lost touch in recent years, I shall always remember her support and encouragement at Merrill Lynch in Macon. She indeed had a storied career in our industry and was a role model for many of us. I was glad, however, to read that Kevin has a lovely family and Nancy had 2 granddaughters on whom to bestow her wisdom and boundless love. A candle has dimmed with her passing.

As a young broker at Merrill Lynch in Atlanta , Nancy was my mentor and showed me the ropes on getting my business started. She was like a mom to all the young guys. She was one of the smartest and classiest women I have ever met. I am sorry to hear of your loss. She was a very special person and I will miss her.

Mike Corsini, Atlanta, Ga

I am sorry to hear that Nancy passed away. She and I worked together in the 90's. She was a positive influence on many throughout her career at Bank of America. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.

Mary Rankin, Atlanta, GA

Nancy was truly an inspiration and role model in my life and career. I always looked forward to the times our family would spend time with Ed and Nancy. She will be greatly missed and I feel extremely blessed to have known her and been apart of her family. My prayers are with Kevin, Cassie and family.

"And the last enemy, death, is to be brought to nothing." (1 Corinthians 15:26) I cannot imagine the pain that your family is going through right now. God promises that he will soon wipe away and reverse the effects of this enemy that causes so much pain. Your precious mom, sister and friend will be brought back to you and you will never have to experience the pain of losing her ever again. This is a promise from God! (Isaiah 33:24; Isaiah 25:8; Revelation 21:4,5) Jw.org

Nancy Meeks Beckwith, 81, of Savannah, Georgia, passed away peacefully in Savannah on Sunday, July 2nd, 2017.

Born in Deland Florida, Nancy pioneered as one of the earliest women to break into the ranks of Stock Brokerage when she began her career with Merrill Lynch in 1969. She led a storied career as a Stock Broker, Brokerage Manager, and Financial Advisor for 37 years. Along the way, she counseled, mentored, and shaped the successful careers of hundreds of men and women, who continue to this day to express their adoration and gratitude for the lessons and wisdom she provided. To Nancy, everything was possible through sheer determination, as long as you tried to do the "Right Thing for the Right Reasons".

Nancy was loving wife to her late husband Ed Beckwith, to whom she was married for 54 years. She was a model of wisdom, integrity, and generosity to her son Kevin and daughter-in-law Cassie Beckwith, and a shining light of love to her grandchildren Sallie Rose and Lulie Beckwith, all of Savannah, Georgia.

Also surviving are Nancy's brother Hubert (Mary) Meeks, sister-in-law Carolyn Meeks, sister-in-law Jinx (Jack) O'Neal, brother-in-law Cecil Boone, and many nephews, nieces, cousins, and friends, all so important and special in Nancy's life.

There will be a Visitation at Fox & Weeks Funeral Directors, Hodgson Memorial Drive location in Savannah, Georgia on Wednesday, July 5th, 2017 from 5pm to 7pm.

The funeral service will take place at 2pm, Friday, July 7th, 2017 at the Spring Hill Christian Church in Ochlocknee, Georgia, conducted by Pastor Ernie Beckwith. Interment to follow at the church cemetery.

Remembrances: Wesley Monumental Music Endowment, or Wesley Monumental Eli's Place for children (please specify which).  Send to Wesley Monumental UMC, 429 Abercorn Street, Savannah, GA 31401.
