Judith Elaine Medlock
It is with heavy heart we announce the passing of our mother, Judith Elaine Medlock on Sunday, January 23rd, 2022 at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. She was predeceased by her parents, Clarence and Dorothy; and her youngest daughter, Joline. Judy is survived by her daughters, Lianne (Glenn) Miller and Kristina Medlock; sons, Billy and Darryl Medlock; grandchildren: Sheldon, Chelsea (Vince) Sean, Jayde and Alice; great-grandson, Kolten; and sisters, Linda and Claire.
Judith, or known to most Judy, was born on September 19th, 1946 to Clarence and Dorothy Larvick in Carrot River, Saskatchewan. Judy took most of her schooling in Carrot River before moving to Moose Jaw. After marrying and starting her family, they moved west to settle in Creston, BC. Raising her five children kept her very busy, and as well as later working in the childcare field. Judy enjoyed being a part of many young people’s lives and was always there to lend an ear or hand to anyone who needed it. In 2009 she made her way back to Moose Jaw to reside closer to family. Judy will be missed and cherished by many.
We would like to thank the staff at the Dr. F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital, especially the intensive care unit nurses, for taking amazing care of our mom.
In keeping with Judy’s wishes, a Private Family Service will be held. As an expression of sympathy, donations in Judy’s name may be made to your local animal shelter.
As long as there is love and memories, there is no true loss.
Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane. Todd Sjoberg, Funeral Director 306-693-4550
I’m sorry to read of your mom’s passing Krissy.
Hugs dear cousin.
Judy and I shared the same Great-grandfather (James Richard Medlock) who traversed in the early 20th century to homestead farmland in a new town created by Canadian Pacific RR. My research showed that the 1918 influenza took a toll on the Medlock household. Ill, James died at his birth home (Chapin, Illinois) in 1918. His son Frank died in the Expanse farm. There’s quite a history of this family in Expanse. I was really surprised to learn that Medlocks continue to thrive there.
I have a photo of the original homestead for those interested. My sincerest condolences.
