     Melba May Medsker, the daughter of Dell and Mabel (Fields) Tibbetts, was born on September 14, 1930, in Peterson, Iowa. She was raised and attended school there, graduating from Peterson High School.

      She married Daryl “Bud’ Medsker on March 11, 1949, in Jackson, Minnesota. Melba was a homemaker and raised her family. Throughout their married life, they lived in Buena Vista and Cherokee counties, and New Ulm and Sanborn, Minnesota. In 1990, the couple retired and moved to Peterson.

      In her retirement, Melba enjoyed spending time with her grandkids and great-grandkids. She made sure everyone was fed well when they would visit. She volunteered at the Senior Center in Peterson, helping serve the meals. She also was involved in the Ladies Club. After spending time living in Colorado, she moved to Cobble Creek in 2012.

“I would like to express my condolences to the family and friends of Melba Medsker. There will come a time when death and mourning will be no more. (Revelation 21:3,4) This is what our loving God, Jehovah, has promised. We also have the hope of seeing our loved ones again. (John 5:28,29) May those verses bring you some comfort in your time of mourning. ”
