Obituary for Edna Medaris

Edna  Medaris
Visitation at Vondel Smith Mortuary South, Tuesday May 30th from 4-8PM, & 4-8 PM Wednesday May 31, with family greeting friends from 6-8 PM Wednesday.

Funeral Services will be held Thursday June 1, 2017 at 10:00 AM in the South Colonial Chapel (6934 S. Western) with burial following at Marlow Cemetery, Marlow, OK at 2:30 PM.

Edna Jean Medaris passed away Saturday morning peacefully in her bed. She was born January 29, 1925 to David and Mary (Schiebel) Borger in Saskatchewan, Canada. She graduated from Lorebern high school in 1947. Edna wanted to become a nurse at eight years old and even wrote a paper on her desire to be a nurse for a grade. She attended the Holy Family Hospital in Prince Albert Saskatchewan school of nursing and graduated in January 29, 1950. She later attended Winnipeg General Hospital school of nursing, specializing in obstetrics and graduated on July 26 1952. Edna worked in Canada after graduation, then came to the US and worked as a nurse in Columbia, Missouri and also in Florida. She met her husband Wilburn Medaris on a train they later married and settled in Oklahoma City. Edna was very proud that she was a nurse, and always told every nurse and doctor she met, that she was a nurse. She expressed that the nursing care these days we're not up to her standards. As a nurse, she wore the white cap and stood at attention when any doctor entered the room. Her caring spirit and loving heart will be in our memories forevermore.

She was preceded in death by her:
Parents, David and Mary Borger
Husband, Wilburn Horace Medaris.
Brother, Albert David Borger,
Sister, Ruth Francis Borger.

She leaves cherished memories with her:
Two Sons: John Medaris and his wife, Cary, and Billy Medaris and his wife, Darla
Grandchildren: Olivia Jean, Miles David, Taylor Nicole, Jordan Kayley, and Hunter William;
Brother: George Adam Borger;
Many other loving family and friends.

The family wishes to extend their thanks to Dana Brown,
Golden Age Home Health and to Dana Kendall and Bobbi Guinn
for the special care and love they gave to mom.
