Samantha ‘Sammy’ Medinger

Oct. 28, 1989 – Jan. 4, 2014

Samantha “Sammy” Grace Medinger, our sassy, beautiful, talented girl, went to the arms of the Lord God on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014, at the age of 24.

Sammy graduated from Oconomowoc High School in 2008. She was an artist of rare talent and beauty, and her works will be treasured always.

Sammy is survived by her mother, Jody Medinger of Oconomowoc; her father, Blaise Medinger of West Allis; her stepfather, Carl Wintheiser; as well as her beloved Aunty Kris and her Uncle Tiger; her cousins, Charlie Burditt, Nathan Burditt and Noah Maguire; as well as the best group of crazy friends a girl could ever ask for.

As for Sammy? She’s fine.

She’s with Grandpa, Grandma, and her soul-cat, Whiskers. It is up to we, the living, to use God’s strength to see us through.

A celebration of her life will be held from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 11, at the First Congregational Church, 815 Concord Road, Oconomowoc. Dress will be informal.
