Medora Margaret Venneman, 86, of Hollywood, MD died June 26, 2013 at her residence.

Born December 23, 1926 in Gloversville, New York, she was the daughter of the late David Chauncey White and Elsie Beatrice (Van Nostrand) White.

Today the world is a little less bright. Everything moves so fast, changes so fast but "MeMe" was a constant. A constant comfort, a constant advisor, a constant storyteller and a constant warmth.

Medora dedicated her life to teaching others, whether it be in the classroom, the kitchen, or from her living room chair. She loved cooking, crossword puzzles, birds and gardening. She had the kindest, gentlest soul anyone ever had the extreme gift of knowing. She was completely content to sit on her porch watching the birds. She understood how to take advantage of the simple treasures in life and was always grateful for what God gave her.

She was a treasure herself and just like the flowers surrounding her house, they could not last forever, but the brief moment they are here, they make us smile. Medora will be forever missed but never forgotten in the hearts of her family and friends. Every time a bird sings a sweet song, she will be remembered with all the love in the world.

Medora is survived by her children, Philip F. Venneman (Lorrie) of Gloversville, NY, Peter A. Venneman of Manassas, VA, Laura J. Holton of Hollywood, MD and Geri Venneman of Johnstown, NY; nine grandchildren; five great grandchildren; and very special neighbors, Bill and Betty Oliver and daughter Elsie Anne.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her siblings, Ernie, Harold and Donovan White.

Family will receive friends for Medora's Life Celebration Gathering on Sunday, June 30, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at the Brinsfield Funeral Home, 22955 Hollywood Road, Leonardtown, MD 20650.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Gloversville Regional Animal Shelter, P.O. Box 1274, Gloversville, NY 12078 or Hospice of St. Mary's, P.O. Box 625, Leonardtown, MD 20650.
