Edwina was a member of Mt. Hermon Baptist Church where she enjoyed the singing more than she did the sermon. She also enjoyed going home to visit First Baptist Church with her mother and children. Edwina loved to talk about her soap operas and had to always watch Bobby Jones on Sunday. Her favorite movies were all of Tyler Perry’s movies especially Madea.

All who knew our mother knew she loved to cook and was a fabulous cook. We all loved her homemade rolls, pound cake, and homemade ice cream along with many more favorites. She also loved to knit, making blankets for Londyn, beautiful dish cloths and continued till the end to make a vest for me.

She leaves to cherish her loving memories her devoted children Floyd Perkins Meadows (Yolanda Jackson) Michael Meadows and daughter Deborah Meadows all of Columbus, Ohio. The joy of her life Brittany Meadows and Londyn Kenney. Granddaughters; Angela Meadows (Dayton, Ohio) and Christy Davis (Columbus, Ohio). Grandsons Christopher Meadows, Michael Meadows and Dante Wehe, all of Columbus, Ohio. She also leaves to cherish her memories a host of great grandchildren, a special friend Joanne Foster and her faithful aide Almita Lewis.

To my Mother, My Best Friend

They say there is a reason, they say time will heal, neither time or reason will ever change the way I feel. Gone are the days we used to share but in my heart you will always be there. The gates of memories will never close. I miss you more than anyone will ever know till we meet again-your daughter, your best friend. – Deborah
