I was saddened to see the notice of Madeline’s passing but know she was welcomed into the arms of her savior. I had enjoyed visiting her in her little home on Water Street with the view of the Creek from her back deck. I also has some pleasant visits with her as Kinzua before visiting became restricted. I’m sure she will be missed by her many loved ones as well as the ladies at First Nazarene where she was part of our Bible study for many years. May God bring you comfort as you treasure your memories in your heart, knowing that Madeline’s faith has carried her through to her place in Heaven.
