Over the last decade, she enjoyed her life overlooking the inlet, listening to concerts, watching beachgoers, and most important to her, walking her great-grandchildren around the neighborhood. Madeline was known for her vibrant stories, her endless searches for lost items located right in front of her, and her love for game nights including Michigan Rummy with her grandchildren with costumes and pretzel rod cigars. Madeline was preceded in death by her husband, Harold and son, Harold.
