Thelma Medema

February 5, 1936 — January 28, 2023

Waupun, WI

Thelma Medema, 86, of Waupun, was relieved by the Lord of her earthly struggles on Saturday, January 28, 2023. 

Thelma was born February 5, 1936 in Brandon, WI, the daughter of Herman and Allie Bronkhorst Medema. Thelma had many special needs and yet was able to stay in her own home until she died. She worked for many years at Helen's Kitchen wrapping silverware. She also did a lot of babysitting for her nephews, nieces, and some church groups. Thelma delighted in finding Bibles to leave for people to take from her apartment laundry room. Much of her life revolved around her church. She loved her pastor and rarely missed Sunday services. Thelma appreciated the love and care of family and friends. She often said, “Everyone is so good to me!” Thelma had a remarkable ability to remember the birthdays and anniversaries of all her family members and had cards ready for them. We, her family, are so thankful to know that God has now received her into his wonderful freedom and joy of eternal peace. Her presence has made a significant impact on many lives.

Thelma is survived by her brother, Pastor Ted (Julia) Medema; a sister, Margaret Mittelstaedt; sisters-in-law: Ramona and Evie Medema; and many nieces and nephews. 

Thlema was preceded in death by her parents; brothers: Alvin, Clayton (Carol), John (Marcie), and George (Bonnie) Medema; and sister, Helen (John) Aalpoel.
