It is with great sadness that we announce that Gladys Madoche passed away at the age of 96 on Sunday, September 15, 2013 surrounded by her family and best friend Val “I think”( a private joke between Mom and Val). The family has comfort knowing that Mom is at peace and with our Dad, Robert Madoche and our sister Betty.
Mom was born in Gillards Cove, Newfoundland and met dad in St. John’s where he was stationed during the Second World War.
Mom will be deeply missed by her children: Mel, Bob (Norma), Jenette (Eldon Campbell), Bruce (Pat), Dan (Betty); sisters: Joyce (Bob) Bailey, Lil (Rex) Lopez; her very special and loving friend Val (Byron) Bray along with eleven grandchildren; twenty one great-grandchildren and four great great grandchildren.
The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to the staff on the fourth floor of the Lynnwood Auxiliary Care Centre and the Misericordia Hospital staff stationed at Unit 42 at the Royal Alexandra Hospital.
