Grammie loved all us kids and would find what we liked to do whether it be crafts, cooking, catching tadpoles or even playing in the dirt. She started the love of art in me with those crafts which stayed through collage (degree in graphic art) and still enjoy now. When my brother and I moved so far away Grammie would send us goodie boxes and boy did those peanut butter balls (so good) always make me smile. Then again all memories of Grammie make me smile. She was greatly loved and will be greatly missed.

Donna was definitely a special and giving lady. Jamie and Amanda spent many days and nights with Grammie Madore baking, reading and playing games. She would also make time to listen if that's what was needed. I know all of you will miss her dearly but she will be waiting for us with her Christmas tree decorated with all her homemade goodies, smiling and laughing.
Please except my sincere condolences . Nancy
