March 9, 2003–July 25, 2011
We lost our “princess” Madeline on July 25, 2011. How can you say goodbye to such a precious little girl with her beautiful brown eyes, her wonderful smile (especially if a camera was involved), her love of the family gatherings, her excitement over her “pretties”, her love of shoes and dressing up, her incredible strength and placid acceptance of whatever she had to endure due to her illness.
These are all part of the “Maddie” that was loved and will be loved forever by her mom Allison, her very special dad Peter; her grandma and grandpa Jackie and Tom; her auntie’s and uncle’s Heather, Sarah and Adam, Jodie and Ian, Karolina and Aaron, Jaimie and David, Andrew, and Megan and Jake. Her new brother Emmett and cousin Lachlan will not have the opportunity to enjoy her spirited organizing of activity as her cousins Adam Jr., William and Moira have. She will also be missed by her step-brother Jordan and the rest of her family in Ontario and by her father Kenneth and the rest of her family in Saskatchewan
The family invite you to attend a prayer service at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Crowfoot Chapel (82 Crowfoot Circle N.W.), on Thursday, July 28, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Peter’s Catholic Church (541 Silvergrove Drive N.W.) on Friday, July 29, 2011 at 2:00 p.m. You may forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
Maddie loved the colours pink and purple so we invite anyone attending to wear these colours in celebration of her life.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Kids Cancer Care Foundation of Alberta, Suite 302, 609 – 14th Street N.W., Calgary, AB T2N 2A1, www.kidscancercare.ab.ca .
