Obituary

“Margaret’s Former Years”

Margaret Elizabeth White Nedab was born by the quiet waters of Quinby, VA on Wednesday, April 7, 1926 to her loving parents, the late Thomas and Lucy Drummond White.

She received her primary education at the Trower School of Accomack County where her reading abilities afforded her the opportunity of reading to the entire class. On May 14, 1943 Margaret graduated from the Mary Nottingham Smith High School, Accomack, VA.

As a tender plant, Margaret was rooted and grounded in the church. At the age of twelve she formally gave her life to the Lord, was baptized and was extended the Right Hand of Fellowship at the Herbert Baptist Church under the pastorate of Reverend T. Turlington. She remained an active member of the church for over 80 years.

She enjoyed being adored and protected by her older brothers Ralph and John White, attending large family gatherings with her family and of course helping her mother around the house which prepared her for establishing her own home.

During this time she met the heartbeat of her love James Alston Nedab, Sr. James and Margaret entered into Holy Matrimony in July of 1945. Their marriage was favored with six children. They made their home in Wachapreague, VA, in the Locust Mount community.

“Margaret’s Midmost Years”

The Nedabs lived wholesome lives and their home was a haven of love, respect, joy and good food. Their home overflowed with so much love they shared in the raising of their grandchildren and other family members.

Margaret’s family, her faith, and her friends were so important to her. “Miss Margaret,” as she was respectfully called, in the community, possessed a well of wisdom that benefited her family as well as her community. Her knowledge was a source of strength to generations and the words she spoke and the example she lived will now reverberate through those who received them.

Margaret was an ordained Deaconess, provided leadership to the Annual Family Day and the Missionary Circle. She was past president of the Deaconess Ministry of the Eastern Shore VA-MD Baptist Association. On May 18, 2002 she earned a certificate in Religious Studies, the Samuel DeWitt Proctor School of Theology of Virginia Union University, The Baptist General Convention of Virginia. Her work in the church has left an indelible mark and laid the foundation on which others now build.

Margaret was a hard worker. On June 2, 1961 she earned a diploma from the Clark Beauty School of Beauty Secrets, Accomac, VA. She worked at the Wachapreague Hotel and was an Avon Consultant for over 40 years. In 1987 she retired from the Hermitage of the Eastern Shore.

“Margaret’s Latter Years”

For over the last 23 years Margaret was so technology savvy. On October 4, 2001 she received a certificate of completion, Introduction to Computers, Eastern Shore Community College, Melfa, VA. Daily she used electronic mail, played games, texted and called family and friends on her cellular phone. She was a frequent shopper of QVC and packages containing the latest in fashion and gadgets arrived often.

Doctors did not expect young Margaret to live past the age of thirteen. However, the Master-Doctor overruled and Margaret’s will to live a full life afforded her 93 years…that’s 4,862 weeks and 5 days, 34,039 days, 816,936 hours, 49,016,160 minutes, 2,940,969,600 seconds.

Likely so, green was Margaret’s favorite color, the symbol of a vibrant and flourishing life. And she lived a vibrant and flourishing life until her very last breath. She and the Lord were in command of her time. She honored the one who created her and on Sunday, June 16, 2019 at 9:20 a.m. the Lord said come live with me and she transitioned as she lived, simply...peacefully.

Margaret will live in the abiding memory of her children, Jacqueline C. Nedab, Cathy K. Nedab, Dalbert Nedab (Yvonne), James A. Nedab, Jr. (Ida), Floyd T. Nedab, and Rodney J. Nedab (Robin). Her grandchildren Edward L. Olds, Jr. (Sheilah), Dalbert P. Nedab, Jr., Cedric D. Nedab (Toya), Kaye Nedab Gaskins, and Eneetra D. Johnson. Her great grandchildren: Alston M. Olds (Tiffany), Aaron L. Olds, LaMonta’ Miles, Deontra’ M. Miles, Zairia I. Miles and Cahriq Bright and many other loving family members and dear friends.
