Madolyn owned a catering service for over 30 years and took great pride in her profession. It always thrilled her to see the brides whose wedding receptions she had catered. She was an outstanding cook and prepared food that was not only delicious but beautifully displayed.

She was a member of the Red Bank United Methodist Church for over 55 years. She was extremely active in her church prior to her illness. At the time of her death she was a member of the Shaw-Murray Sunday School Class. In earlier years she was a Sunday school teacher, member of the Chancel Choir and served on many committees. She was on the committee whose members began the Wednesday night dinners. For 13 years, she supervised the preparation and serving of these dinners, with the help and expertise of her two dear friends, Mattie Fowlke and Mabel Williams. Later, as a member of the church’s WSCS she was asked to select, purchase and decorate the furniture and accessories for the present church parlor. This was a fulfillment of a service of love which she had dreamed of for many years.

In addition to her church, she was deeply involved in the Garden Club activities. She served as president of the Daytonia Garden Club of Red Bank for several years. She was elected chairperson of the Tennessee District III State Garden Club and vice president of the Tennessee State Garden Club.

She and her husband were avid square dancers and were members of the Circle Eights Square Dance Club for more than 30 years.

Madolyn loved being a part of her civic, community and area recreational activities. She spent many hours planting, watering and caring for the flowers, bushes and trees in the Red Bank community. However, she always considered her home, family and church the most cherished and important parts of her life. She will be greatly missed by those who loved her most.

The family will receive friends from 5-8 p.m. today, March, 8, at the Red Bank United Methodist Church.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, at Red Bank United Methodist Church. The Rev. Jeff Lambert and the Rev. Mark Gooden will officiate.
