Agnes was born in Coffee County, TN, the daughter of the late Orian Baker and Quixie Mae Carrick Nunley. She fell into her father’s footsteps by beginning her 34-year teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in the Mud Creek Community. It was in this setting that Agnes found her love for teaching small children. She taught in Germany, England, Warren County Headstart and retired as a kindergarten teacher in the Manchester City School system. Agnes loved flowers and loved her family. One said “no mother was ever loved so much by her sons.”
In addition to her parents, Agnes was also preceded in death by her husband, Carl Medford, who passed in 2008 and one brother, Roy Max Nunley. She is survived by two sons, Michael Carl (Louise) Medford and Mark Nunley Medford; grandchildren, Josh Medford, Greg Medford, Jessica Medford and husband Joe Laurenzi, Michelle (Jason) Ferrell, James (Shelly) Conn; great grandchildren, Hudson Medford, Glenn and Catherine Laurenzi, Morgan and Macy Ferrell, Sarah, J.C. and Isaac Conn; one sister, Mary Alice Booker; numerous nieces and nephews; and a special friend and caregiver, Wanda Johnston.
