Life began for Cleo on Friday, June 11th, 1926 in Montgomery County. She was born to the union of the late Rufus and Cora Majors and was blessed with eight siblings. Cleo was raised and educated in Montgomery County.
She was married to the late Frank Merriweather, Sr. Cleo was the loving and ever supportive step-mother of Frank Merriweather, Jr. She was a retired housekeeper, homemaker and an absolute superb cook. Her work was a reflection of her capable, caring and warmly kind spirit.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by sisters, Flossie Corley, Mildred Sallee, Dorothy Davenport and Annie Nevels; and three brothers, James Perkins, Burney Perkins and Rufus Jewell Majors.
