Betsy Thornton Medlin

Betsy Thornton Medlin left this earthly place on March 29.  She will be missed by all that loved her, including her only daughter, Macon Medlin White and Macon’s husband Duane White.  

For those who knew her will remember her beautiful face, glowing smile and her kindness to everyone she met throughout life.

Betsy was married to George Medlin who predeceased her in 1975.  Together they created one of the most beautiful subdivisions on Lake Gaston, FernCliff.  Betsy would go on to create another subdivision, Thornton Place.

She lived a rich and full life pulling all that were around her into her magical spell.  She was an avid bridge player as well as a member of a long standing wine club.  Betsy served on the local First Citizens bank board for many years and was instrumental in the creation of the Littleton Medical Clinic.

A graveside service will be held at Greenwood Cemetery in Macon, North Carolina on Saturday, April 10 at 4:00 pm.  

In lieu of flowers Betsy requested that you donate to the Littleton United Methodist Church, PO Box 26, Littleton, NC 27850, the Macon United Methodist Church, 107 Church Street, Macon, NC 27551 or to the Betsy Medlin Scholarship Fund, PO Box 27, Littleton, NC 27850.
