She was born April 20, 1948, in Stanley, and was a daughter of the late Edward Thomas and Carrie Elizabeth Cubbage Knott.

Her previous employer was E.A. Breeden at Coors in Elkton until retirement in February of 2011. Waddy was a devoted mother and especially enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and listening to bluegrass gospel music. She never met a stranger and was a friend to all that knew her.

Comer of Elkton; five grandchildren, Dalton and Garrett Meadows, Austin Kirby, Annette Meadows and Ryan Meadows; brothers, Tommy, Billy, Marty, John David and Ralph Knott; sisters, Wanda Six, Linda Sampson, Florence Lam, Virginia Comer and Annie “Sissy” Comer; and former husband, Bruce Comer. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Randolph Meadows, in 1975; brothers, Walter and Oscar Knott; and a sister, Ruby Knott.  

The funeral service will be held at the Kyger Funeral Home Chapel in Elkton 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 11, 2013, with Pastor Tony Cubbage, the Rev. Homer Frazier and Pastor Ronald Spencer officiating. Burial will follow in Leake’s Chapel Cemetery in Stanley.
