Vera Medico


 Vera Rice Medico, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, died on November 25, 2023, in Elizabeth City, North Carolina. She was born on July 2, 1926, in Greenville, South Carolina. Vera lived a long and fulfilling life, leaving behind cherished memories for her family to hold dear.

Vera was a proud member of Eastern Star for over fifty years and the oldest member of Corinth Baptist Church.  Throughout her life, Vera found joy and purpose in her role as a homemaker, dedicating herself to creating a warm and loving home for her family. Her love and care extended to her son, Gary Medico, who will forever cherish the bond they shared. Vera’s nurturing spirit touched the lives of her six grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren, who will fondly remember her kindness and affection.  

Vera was preceded in death by her parents, Carman Rice, and Ethel Vest Rice, her loving husband, Frank Medico, and her son, Gary Medico. Although she is no longer with us, Vera’s memory will continue to live on in the hearts of those who loved her dearly.

A graveside service to honor Vera’s life will be held at Arlington National Cemetery at a later date.

During this time of grief, may we find solace in the cherished memories we shared with Vera. Let us remember her as a devoted mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, whose love and warmth will forever remain in our hearts.
