Janet MeekinsOctober 13, 1963 ~ October 6, 2017 (age 53)
Janet Meekins, 53 of Cambridge, departed this life on Thursday, October 5, 2017 at Mallard Bay Nursing Home. Janet Meekins, lovingly known as Spot, was born on October 13, 1963 to the late Geraldine Edith Meekins and James Cornish Jr.
Janet attended Dorchester County Public schools and graduated from Cambridge South Dorchester High School with the class of 1982. Janet worked as a flagger for several years and loved that position. She left that job to raise her two youngest boys. While raising her youngest sons, she also enjoyed babysitting for many people in the neighborhood. She also enjoyed attending Zion Baptist Church up until her illness. Janet was very special to all that knew her. She enjoyed polishing her nails every day, cooking, doing laundry, and dancing. Her friends recall her hanging out with friends, going to ball games, sitting on the front porch of her friend’s house, and sitting on the wall on Pine Street (because she was too young to get in the club). Every weekend before hanging out on the wall, Janet and her friends went to McDonalds and purchased double cheeseburgers. They didn’t miss a weekend. Janet loved to get her hair done by Jackie’s mother and on many occasions Spot and Jackie would dress alike with the same outfits.
Janet is preceded in death by her mother Geraldine Meekins; her father James Cornish, a sister Carolyn Meekins-Blake and special friend Preston Keene Jr.
She leaves to cherish her memory two daughters, LaAngela Todd of Bridgeville, Delaware, Margo Todd of Cambridge; 3 sons: Allister Todd Jr. (Muss), Preston Keene (Mar), and K’vonte Keene (Ore) all of Cambridge; 5 grandchildren: Briantaza Todd, Ke’Onbre Todd, Antonia McCoy, Marcus McMullen and Amari Todd; 3 brothers: James E. Cornish (Cheryl) of Upper Marlboro, Jeffrey Meekins of Baltimore, Anthony Meekins (Lynn) of Cambridge; 4 sisters: Edythia Lancaster of Landover, Joanne Meekins of Centreville, Brenda Meekins-Walker of Baltimore, and Christina Meekins of Cambridge; 4 best friends: Jackie McKnight, Loretta Cropper, Wyneema Jolley- Meekins, Joy Cornish and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
