Text size


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.
