Madeleine dedicated her life to her husband John as loyal wife, hardworking hands on the farm, mother to the four children they graciously adopted as their own, and as unwavering caregiver for John to his final day. Madeleine lost John far too early and although she never stopped missing him, her resilience, curiosity and dedication to her faith propelled her to live out dreams and celebrate many firsts; like world travel, several cross Canada car trips with her friends to see her daughter Pat in Calgary, AB, and most notably, achieving Elder status for the Community of Christ Church in 1991. In retirement, Madeleine spent much of her time as Clergy for the Manitoulin Health Centre, having sat with hundreds of families during times of sickness, death and dying.
Madeleine Charlton, a remarkable life, lived to the fullest. Forever rest in peace with Dad, Mom.
