Our beloved Georgia Lee “Big Momma” Means moved to her Heavenly Home Sunday, Aug. 26, 2018, at the age of 79 years, 7 months and 20 days, from an Ardmore convalescent home.
Georgia Lee, affectionately known as Big Momma, was born Jan. 6th, 1939, to the union of Lewis and Hattie Jackson Means; the fifth of seven children born into this God fearing home.  Growing up in the Milo community, she attended Central School, and at a young age was baptized in Brown Lake, as a member of the Jehovah Baptist Church, where she faithfully served God. She was a longtime member of the usher board, the missionary society, the adult choir and the culinary committee.
As she grew, so did her family as she became the loving mother of eight children, five daughters and three sons. Her first home was established at Milo and later moving to Lone Grove and finally to Ardmore. While living in Ardmore she worked many years for Cooks Laundry and later Ritz Cleaners. A loving and devoted mother and grandmother, Big Momma’s most joyous occasions were those spent with her family.
At Heaven’s Gate, Big Momma was greeted by her son, Charles Means, her daughter, TaJuanna Means, her parents, Lewis and Hattie Means, two sisters, Odessa Crawford and Lillie Mae Pickens, two brothers, Brady (Heavy) Means and Mearon L. (Wren) Means and daughter-in-law, Ellen (Sis) Means.
Big Momma will forever remain in the hearts of sons, Nathan K. Means, Sr. and Donnie J. (Jaquice) Means, Ardmore; daughters, Eldoria and husband, Rev. Fred L. Johnson, Gene Autry; Phillis (Sue) and husband, Phillip Washington, Charry D. Means and Shenell and husband, Cecil Maytubby all of Ardmore; the pride and joy of her life were her 16 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren; also surviving is a sister, Dorothy Carr and husband Charles, a brother, Rev. Johnny D. Means and wife, Lorene, all of Ardmore; also her very special friends, Mrs. Shirley Cotton, Mrs. Leola McGee and Nancy Hughes; a host of nieces, nephews and other extended family.
Pastor Gregory L. Newhouse will officiate Celebration of the Life Services of Big Momma at 11 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 1, 2018, at Jehovah Baptist Church. Burial will follow in Jehovah Cemetery with the assistance of Joe Pickens, Eldon Carr, Nathan Means, Jr., Timothy Pickens, Craig Douglas and Leander Johnson serving as pallbearers.
