Jonah Meredith, Jr.

 

On October 13, 2022, Jonah Meredith, Jr., affectionately known in the community as (Pops) entered eternal rest at UVA Medical Center in Charlottesville, VA. 

 

Jonah was born on February 8, 1934, in Nelson County, VA., the son of the late Alma and Jonah Meredith.

 

Jonah was a self-employed brick and cement mason.  He loved working on cars, farming, and riding motorcycles.  He was stubborn and humorous as he loved to trash talk and tell stories about the days of his youth. One of his favorite possessions was pictures of his family. He lived a vibrant 88 years of life on his own terms. In lieu of disappointing those he loved he never made promises that he couldn’t keep- he would always respond with “I’ll see what I can do”. He could often be found helping his neighbors or providing food, shelter, financial and moral support to those that surrounded him.

 

Jonah was preceded in death by his wife, Josephine Meredith; brothers, Jimmy and Joe Lewis Meredith; sisters, Christine Meredith and Caroline Taylor; sons, Charles Giles, and Norman Meredith; and  daughters, Brenda Stanley, and Sandra Meredith. 

 

He leaves to cherish his memory daughters, Alma Meredith Bell, Ellen Marie Meredith, Barbara Jean Turner, Pamela Meredith Hamilton (Paul, Jr.);  sons, John William Johnson (Jean), Reverend Robert Meredith (Debra), James (Boe) Toliver (Dottie), Boyd Anthony Toliver (Tony), Jonah Meredith, III, and William Meredith. A special caregiver, Carolalene Giles, and a host of nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

 

A funeral service will be conducted at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 23, 2022 at Wells/Sheffield Funeral Chapel with Reverend Robert Meredith officiating.

The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service.

Arrangements by the Wells/Sheffield Funeral Chapel, Lovingston, VA (434-263-4097).
