She was loved by all who knew her and will be greatly missed
With a sweet smileand a sunny disposition, Madeline was loved by all . She could strike up a conversation with anyone and, by the end would always share a laugh. Mother to six children (all born a year apart), throuought the 60's and 70's and well into the 80's Madeline's days were filled with endless laundry, cooking, and cleaning. she was a committed mother who spread her love throuought her family in ways that are immeasurable. Its no wonder though that in her last years, she loved to eat out.
A devoted Christian, Madeline embraced and assimilated the values and practices of the church daily. No matter who she was speaking to, she would work those values into her conversations.Whether you needed guidance or soothing, by imparting her values, Madeline was there to share advise and comfort with a little humor mixed in. Mass was her weekly retreat and prior to the pandemic, she was a regular at St. Margaret's on Sunday mornings. She continued this practice from home during the pandemic and would begin the day watching the broadcast from St. Patrick's Cathedral and then finish off with the end of the mass from St. Margaret's.
Madeline was truly loved by all and will be missed by all. Always with a smile, she was vibrant and energetic throughout her 91 years of life. We are sure she is brightening the heavens with her love.
