Waletta was the definition of a free spirit; independent, strong, and willful. She was a courageous and beautiful soul who loved her son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, her sisters, and all her friends with a ferocity not beholden to mortality. Waletta’s love will transverse time and space – she will always be here right next to us. She would want us to celebrate her life and to smile, not to mourn her. We are at peace knowing that she is caring for her grandson, Ezra, in heaven.
Survivors include her son, Dylan (Danielle) Medlock, granddaughter, Zelda Medlock; sisters; Kay Rose, Kimberly Miller, and Rita Higgins. She was preceded in death by her parents, Bud Thomas Medlock and Mary Jean Medlock; grandson, Ezra Thomas Medlock.
Memorial contributions may be made in her name to Trinity Episcopal Church and may be sent in care of Warren-McElwain Mortuary, 120 W. 13th Street, Lawrence, KS 66044.
