    What a fine lady! I knew her through the TPCA and became friends with her when I attended those meetings. She was always funny and loved to laugh. She will be missed by all you knew her.

    Aunt Maddie was a wonderful lady full of life. She always looked at the “silver lining” in everyone and everything. A Godly woman that loved to read, take trips with her daughter, Chrissy, and see if she could talk “Richard Allen, into bringing her her evening cup of coffee. She loved “her girls”, Chapple & Hannah, like they were her own grandchildren. She enjoyed keeping them when they were small and always having their favorite goodies in her home for them to snack on. She fought through breast cancer, but her heart just wasn’t strong enough to withstand all of her health issues. We will all miss you dearly Aunt Maddie!! Enjoy a cup of coffee and conversation with God and your Daddy.

    Madeline was such a wonderful person. She was not only my boss at TPCA but I considered her a friend. I loved hearing her stories about Crissy, Richard, her nieces and nephews, the twin girls that she adored, Michael and countless other family members. TPCA has not been the same for me since she left and I am saddened by her passing. My deepest sympathies go out to those who loved her. She will be missed.

    I am so sorry I was unable to attend the services today. Madeline was a dear friend all during our HS days at Cohn. We enjoyed many school activities together. We rode the bus home from school most days since she lived only a block or so away.

    She was a dear friend to all who knew her. She had a great attitude that was contageous.
    I am sure she will be missed by all who survive her.

    My blessings to you all . Only God can assuage the grief that must surely be yours today.

    I am sorry for your loss of such a lovely lady. Dick, you had 49 years with a great partner. That has to be tough but she is watching over you. God bless your family at this time.
