Obituary for Natalie P. Medina

Natalie P. Medina, 21, of Mount Carmel, Illinois, passed away on Saturday, September 7, 2019 at Barnes Jewish Hospital in St. Louis, Missouri surrounded by the love of her family.  She was born on August 20, 1998 in Centralia Illinois, the daughter of Josh and Mistie (Goss) Medina.   Natalie was a 2017 graduate of Mount Carmel High School.   She was a great athlete and important member of both the Softball and Volleyball teams.  She went on to Wabash Valley College where she again played Volleyball and graduated with an Associates Degree in Science & Arts.  She was accepted to Southern Illinois University, Edwardsville and Lakeland College.  Natalie worked at Taco Tierra for five years and dearly loved her Taco family.  Her greatest achievement was being a friend to many. Natalie touched so many lives both near and far.  She had a knack for making everyone feel special and to Natalie, it didn’t matter if someone was a Freshman or a Senior, she loved her friends equally.   Spending time with her friends was her favorite thing to do.  It has been said that Natalie was “larger than life” and could often be counted on to be the life of the party. She was affectionately given the nickname “Deaner”.  Natalie loved music and food.  Natalie and her younger brother, Trevin, shared a very special bond.  She admired him and looked out for him and he would do the same for her.  She was one of his biggest supporters.  She will be dearly missed. Natalie will forever be remembered by her parents; brother Trevin Medina; maternal grandmother, Patty Goss of Centralia, IL; maternal great-grandmother, Jane Aaron of Centralia, IL; paternal grandparents, Dee & Randy Corrie of Carterville, IL; Aunt, Tracy Shumate; uncles, E.C. Bounds, Dustin & Steve Cody; several loved cousins; and countless best friends and their families. Natalie was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Mike Cody; maternal great-grandfather, Dale Goss. Family and friends are invited to gather for a Visitation from 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., Saturday, September 14, 2019, at Parkview Christian Church, 11467 N 1550 Blvd, Mt. Carmel, IL  62863.   Funeral Services will be at 4:00 p.m., Saturday, September 14, 2019 at Parkview Christian Church with Brad Hadra officiating.   The Family would like to express their heartfelt thanks to the community for their kind words and deeds and for loving Natalie as if she were their own.
