Meredith “Page” Mead • October 27, 2021

Meredith Page Mead went to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, so that she may watch over us in Heaven.

She was born in Richmond, Virginia to Bill and Dorothy Eckles. Page was the youngest of 3 children and she grew up in the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. In 1972, she graduated from Towers High School. She moved to Pensacola, Florida and worked at International Paper as a sanitation clerk for 23 years before retiring in 2008.

Page was a member of Hillcrest Baptist Church. Her faith and love for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, was steadfast. She was an avid college football fan and rarely missed a game her precious Georgia Bulldogs played. She also enjoyed camping, crafting, and attending Bands on Blackwater. She loved spending time with her friends and family, especially her grandkids, who she held so dear to her heart.

She is preceded in death by her parents. Left to cherish her memory are her husband, William Rogers Mead of Bagdad, Florida; children, Brianna Rockmore (Kerry) of Orlando, Florida; Kelli (Tyler) Watkins of Milton, Florida; brother, Alan (Faith) Eckles of Clyo, Georgia; sister, Bonnie Hansen of Atlanta, Georgia; grandchildren, Riley, Austin, Jordyn, and Maverick Watkins; husband’s children, Tami (Joey) White of Milton, Florida; Jesi (Jeff) Goynes of Milton, Florida; grandchildren, Addison Jackson, Lillian Goynes, and Shaun White; and many other family and friends.
