Woodrow was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and a devoted

friend to all. He was a pastor and teacher for more than 70 years and was

the founder and pastor of Jesus Way of Life Church. He performed weddings,

funerals and baptized the multi-thousands. He was n humble man who was

never too busy or too tired, or the hour too late to go to someone on need.

He was a frequent visitor to jails, prisons and hospitals, as many as five

times in one day, locally, and in other counties and states. He and his

wife, Ruth, went on a mission trip to the poverty-stricken side of Jamaica.

A multitalented person who held certificates in insurance, real estate,

auctioneer, and reflexology, he was a gifted motivational speaker. But his

greatest desire was preaching God's word. His one last wish was to reach out

to someone lost and facing eternity without Jesus. In his early days, he

preached at Powells Chapel and Westvue Baptist Church, and afternoons at

Patterson, Wayside, Mt. Carmel, New Hope and Hoover's Gap. He was pastor of

Bellwood Baptist Church and Christian Academy for 40 years. He donated the

land and was administrator at the beginning of Good Shepherd's Children's

Home. He was a pastor in Bedford County before returning to Murfreesboro,

where he organized Jesus Way of Life Church and met at Rucker Chapel for two

years before moving to 2022 E. Main St., where the members purchased the

church and fellowship hall. Brother Medlock was a friend, and a pastor who

served well day or night, regardless of the hour. He was a mountain of a man.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Ode and Pearl Chandler Medlock; son

Carl Medlock; sisters Matilda Medlock Kelton and Willie Vona Medlock; great-

grandchildren Raven Star and Steven Heckler; and stepson Steve Cole. He is

survived by his wife, Ruth Templeton Cole Medlock; son Woody Medlock and his

wife Kathy; daughters Mary Underwood and her husband James, and Sally Brown

and her husband Roger; grandchildren Joann Johnson and her husband David,

Bubba Medlock and his wife Kate, Lydia Kelly, Josh and Thomas Underwood,

Christy Bond and her husband, Shannon Heckler and her husband, Steve, and

Brittany and Ashley Brown; four step-grandchildren, Crystal, Rick and

Justin McCullough and Ashley Cole; 10 great-grandchildren and 14 step-great-

grandchildren. Pallbearers will be John Vaught, David Johnson, Rick McCullough,

Ed Harrell, Richard Johnson, Lee Rouelette, Billy Harvey, James Naron, Shannon

Hines and Eric Hines. Honorary pallbearers will be all the men from Jesus Way

of Life Church. Rucker Memorial Chapel is in charge of the service. Woodrow,

Ruth and son John Cole began their life together in an apartment over the chapel,

known then as Murfreesboro Funeral Chapel, owned by Woodrow and Woody Medlock,

and they wanted to say good-bye there.
