Madge was a private and quiet person, a women of few words but when she did speak you heard her loud and clear. She also spoke with her eyes. Madge loved to eat but you could not tell that by her size. Mention the words ice cream and her eyes would light up. She loved fashion and was known for always looking her best no matter the time of day. Shopping was a hobby and boy did she love shoes. More important she loved her daughters to the moon and back. She lived for them. She single handedly raised them on her own. Madge provided what they needed and what they wanted. She worked hard and did what was needed to be done when it came to her girls. Her life was a life of sacrifice.
