Madle Alpha (Nelson) Weeks

Madle Alpha (Nelson) Weeks, age 80, of Elba, passed away Friday, September 11, in the Opp Health & Rehab. Madle is survived by her son, Douglas & wife Ida; granddaughters Paige and Elizabeth. She was preceded in death by her parents, Esker and Jennie Belle Nelson and brother, Curtis Nelson. In accordance with her wishes, Madle’s body was donated to the University of South Alabama College of Medicine in Mobile, Alabama. 

A longtime resident of the Wiregrass, Madle spent the majority of her life in Covington and Coffee counties. Soon after graduating from Opp High School, she began raising her family in the Elba/Opp area. Known to many of her granddaughters’ friends as “the fun grandma,” Madle aka “Mimi” spent countless hours playing with and entertaining her “little ones.”

Madle enjoyed gardening, sitting in her swing, and reminiscing about her family and friends. She will be dearly missed by her loved ones. 

A memorial service will be held at a future date to be announced.

    Madle was my first cousin, she was one of the kindest and sweetest person I have had the pleasure of knowing in my life, she loved geneology along with me, everyday I would give her an update on our ancestors she’d be over the moon excited about it too, I loved her dearly, and I miss her laugh and her smile and her voice in heaven. But she’s in good company now and she tells me often how happy she is where she is, Fly with the angels my sweet cousin, I love you and miss you , Sissy
