Romelia Yvette Poellintz affectionally known as Ro and Peaches was born on January 3, 1965, in Thomaston, Alabama to the late Julia Poellintz and Eddie Lee Poellintz Sr. Romelia was the sunshine of the family. You could see her smile a mile away. The family relocated to Detroit, MI in 1974 where she was educated in the Detroit Public School System.

Romelia accepted Christ at an early age. In 2014, she was baptized into the Jehovah’s Witness faith in Pickerington, Ohio.
