On February 13, 2017, God fulfilled His promise to Wanda Miller Medlock that “Where I am, there you may be also.” Mrs. Medlock, 84, was born October 8, 1932 in Caldwell County and lived in the community of Granite Falls until moving to Kings Creek. After her high school graduation in 1951, she pursued her first love and calling, to care for children, and began her nursing training at Grace Hospital in Morganton. Upon completion of her registered nursing degree in 1954, Mrs. Medlock was awarded the distinction of Best Pediatric Nurse. Mrs. Medlock began her nursing career at Grace Hospital’s Pediatric Unit before accepting a position at Dula Hospital in Lenoir as Floor Nurse. Her love for children eventually led her to a career in pediatric nursing in a local private practitioner’s office until her retirement in 1978.

As much as Wanda loved her career as a pediatric nurse, her greatest love was for her family. Wanda wed Henry Odum Medlock, Jr. on April 11, 1954 and they were blessed with 54 years of marriage before Henry died in 2008. Left to cherish Wanda’s memory are her four children: daughter, Susan Stronach and husband Bill of Lenoir; daughter, Lisa Pierce and husband Don of Hickory; son, Grant Medlock and wife Sarah of Lenoir; and son, Kelly Medlock; her five adored grandchildren are William Stronach, IV and wife Whitney, Natalie Stronach, Thomas Medlock, Nicholas Medlock, and Madeline Medlock. Wanda is also survived by her beloved sister, Carolyn Parker and husband Martin of Charleston, West Virginia. She was preceded in death by her father, Rev. Grant Roseavelt Miller and mother, Brady Sue Early Miller.

A graveside service will be held Friday, February 17, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at Kings Creek Baptist Church Cemetery conducted by Rev. Randy Goode and Rev. Francis Tate.
