Kind, funny, creative, joyful and generous. Those words are just a few words that describe Madeline.
She was a fine example of a Christian woman. She lived her faith and trust in her Savior. I am grateful to have crossed paths with her and will miss her good council.
She will be missed in so many ways for her loving kindness and encouraging smile.

Madeline was one of a kind. No one was sweeter or kinder. She loved her family, friends, and the Lord with her whole heart. What a big heart she had. I know she is happy and at peace with the Lord. She lead a full happy life. She will be truly missed. I’m so proud to have been able to call her my true friend. God Bless her!!! Terry (Simmons) Arnold.

My first encounter with Madeline was my first year teaching in 1982. I had the privilege of teaching her youngest baby....Michael. Madeline was everyone's favorite substitute! She was a friend to all. I remember how she loved to laugh and have a good time. Since moving to a new school, I am sorry that I haven't seen or spoken to her in a long while.
To the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I am praying for God's comfort and peace. She will truly be missed!
