She also served on numerous committees at Glen Arden Retirement Community where she resided for the last six years and took many trips with the group. She was an active member of the St. John’s Lutheran Church of Middletown and loved her church family very much.
She was predeceased by her loving husband of 50 years, W. Norton Madigan. She is survived by her adopted family members, Joan Wolfe and her husband, Jim Wolfe of Middletown, New York, Kelly Wolslayer and her husband, Ray Rosenbloom of Mount Laurel, New Jersey, Rick Wolslayer of Delmar, New York, and her church family, especially Pastor Peter Rustico and his family, also Robin and Don Talmadge and their daughter, Jessica, and numerous friends.
