In Loving Memory of Diane Mederos

Donation protected
It is with heavy and broken hearts that we as the Mederos family are in need of any support our community and loved ones could offer in these absolutely tragic times that we as a family are dealing with right now. A living nightmare

October 4th, 2023 began like any other day in all of our homes. The same routines, the same conversations, the same jobs, the same drives… until we heard of a devastating wreck that had happened on the intersection of highway 211 and 229 in Culpeper county and in that moment we all experienced the same gut wrenching realization, no one had heard from Mom. No one had heard from the woman who couldn’t go more than a few moments without calling one of us or texting us. She wasn’t answering her phone when she’d normally answer on the first ring when anyone in her family needed her. The panic dropped our hearts into our stomachs as we dropped everything and sped to the scene of the accident and there it was, her car. Completely destroyed and unrecognizable due to the reckless, thoughtless, idiotic decision of someone else when they decided driving nearly double the speed limit was more important than her life or anybody else’s. This terrible tragedy has destroyed the normality of our lives and has taken away our mom, the most amazing woman you’d ever meet. She would light up any room, she would put others before her self. She was the most pure and beautiful person any of us will ever know and that was our mom, a wife, a twin sister, and an awesome “Oma” and the light of any room she walked into.

Diane was the primary caretaker of the home and had just ensured her husband that he was safe to retire and that she would hold down the home because she loved to work and she insisted that providing for her family, loving her family, and being there for her family is what made her feel alive and gave her purpose so she would never retire until we forced her to. Someone else made that decision for her and for us when they took her life.

We always told her that we couldn’t believe how strong she was and how much she did for our family, that she was the perfect “Mom-ager” because she made sure that we were always prepared for anything, she took care of getting together everyone’s doctors appointments, she took care of ensuring all of the bills around the house were taken care of when they need to be, she provided health, dental, and vision insurance for herself, her husband Pedro, and her youngest daughter Michelle, and through doing all of this she smiled and laughed and loved every moment of doing what she did and we all loved and admired everything that she was.

We are beginning this fundraiser to assist with easing the fear and the anxiety behind all of the expenses and financial burdens that come with losing a loved one so that we can focus on knowing that she has somewhere to eternally rest in peace while she makes the journey of Forever with our Lord in Heaven where we know she is with us with her love, guidance, and protection.
