To Maddy’s beloved family— her love for you was infinite— an exceptional mother and grandmother.
I met Maddy and Bob through my husband Warren— they were great friends.
Maddy and I became colleagues at the Amherst St.School, and went on to become dear friends.
Her passing is of great sadness to me personally as a dear friend.
My heart goes out to her family with love and sympathy.
Memory Eternal

Mrs Gingras, thank you for being one the best teachers ever!! To this day, and I am 39 years old now, I can still see your smile when i think of you. Every morning, we would come into class, and there you would be, already to start our day, greeting us all with a 'good morning" and welcoming smile. Thank you for being forever patient with us..you will never be forgotten, rest in paradise..

Dear Michael, Susan, Kevin, Nancy, Kameron and Robbi:
We are so very sorry to learn that Maddy passed. She was a sweetheart who loved you all from the bottom of her heart. There was never a time when we connected that didn't start with an update about her children and grandchildren. In all honesty, it always included what she was going to feed you all, too. Nothing made her happier than time spent with you all.
We wish you all peace in her passing as she dons her guardian angel wings to continue watching over you.
Love, Bruce and Liz
