Maddy was born in 1950 at the Carman Hospital , she was the 2nd youngest of 12 children. They lived Haywood, MB on the family farm until she was five years of age at which time her father passed away. His passing forced the family to leave the farm and move to Winnipeg. Maddy started working in the restaurant business in her late teens, this is where she would meet the love of her life, John. Maddy and John would start a family and Peter was born August 6, 1970, he was the light of her life. Maddy loved being a wife, mother, grandmother and auntie. She enjoyed spending time with the family on holidays and camping trips. Maddy would re-enter the workforce full time in 1980 where she worked in the housekeeping dept. at St. Joseph's Residence. In 1986 she joined John at Winnipeg Prosthetics and Orthotics where she worked as receptionist/bookkeeper. In 1993 Peter married Janice, soon Marko was born in 1995 and Madison in 1997. It was at this time that Maddy became a full time stay-at -home grandma which she thoroughly enjoyed.
