Madonna was a caring, loving, and sweet woman who welcomed everyone with open arms. She loved and trusted the Lord with all her heart, soul, and strength. On May 24, 1984, Madonna married the love of her life, Roger. They were called by the Lord to build Trinity Praise and Worship Assembly, where she was the praise and worship leader and helpmate to Roger in the church for 27 years. During this time, she received an honorary Doctorates degree from Beulah Bible Seminary alongside her husband. Madonna began her work force journey as a cosmetologist but later decided to further her career. She worked hard and received a Bachelor's degree in business management. Madonna worked for Chiphone Credit Union as an assistant bank manager for many years.

Madonna very much enjoyed spending time with her family and grandchildren every chance she had. During the summer months her and Roger enjoyed motorcycle rides and just recently discovered she enjoyed camping and always brought along her dogs, Chloe and Buttercup. She enjoyed adventures at the state parks and long days at the beach. She loved being at the local race tracks watching her son and others race. She enjoyed the outdoors and tending to her garden of vegetables, for her homemade recipes, and her beautiful flowers. In the colder months she enjoyed reading and Hallmark or Disney movie nights. She would attend grandkids plays, musicals, dance recitals, football and basketball games; she was very proud of them all. She loved watching Notre Dame football and yelling at the tv on Saturdays with Roger. She enjoyed singing and attending numerous Christian concerts. Madonna was a talented artist enjoying painting, drawing and designing gifts with her Cricut. One of her fondest achievements was finishing a novel that she took several years to write. Madonna will be greatly missed by not only her loving family, but her best friend, Cindy Schmidt, her adopted mother, Helen Eastman, her church family, all her bonus kids, and grandkids as well.
