She leaves to treasure her memory four sons, Jerry and Pat of Sims, Alabama; Jody, Bunnell; Joey, Bunnell; and Jerald and Debbie also of Bunnell; nine grandchildren and ten great grandchildren; and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
Mrs. Medders adored her sons and was fiercely protective of each and every one of them. The unconditional love she had for her family will never be surpassed. She enjoyed being a mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and always enjoyed surrounding herself with her family. Mrs. Medders enjoyed going to the beach, and collecting anything to do with the Indian Culture and she loved the great Smokey Mountains of North Carolina. She enjoyed for over 35 years visiting her native Indian friend, Chief Henry of Cherokee, North Carolina.
Arrangements are in the care and trust of Craig-Flagler Palms Funeral Home.
