Madge was born September 9, 1933, in Amarillo, TX to Boone and Jessie Moreland. She attended Amarillo High School, then went on to TCU and transferred to the University of Texas, where she was a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority.
Madge was a beautiful person – inside and out! She was so special to everyone she knew. She had zest for life and for her love of the Lord. Madge had a strong faith in the Lord our God. She belonged to the First Baptist Church all her life. She taught children’s Sunday School at First Baptist Church for over 40 years and loved all the children that she had in her classes. Madge was gifted with many talents from sewing, needlepoint, decorating, entertaining, and even cooking! Nothing gave her more joy than to have family and friends around her efforts. She lit up a room with her beautiful smile. Everyone around her was enamored with her contagious smile and beauty! She always held a special place in her heart for her children and her great children. They adored being with Madge at every opportunity.
She worked hard for many years in bookkeeping for First National Bank in her young life and ultimately retired from working with Mark Kile, CPA. She enjoyed her involvement in the Amarillo Junior League and great events like the 49ers Dance, as well as her weekly Bridge Club and monthly Birthday Club.
Over the past few months, Madge developed health issues that she fought so hard to overcome. May she rest in peace, free of pain. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.
Our family is so very thankful to all of the friends, family, business associates, waiters, and waitresses, who fostered the great relationships that Madge sought and she would want you to know that she loved each of you.
Viewing will be from 12:00 to 8:00 P.M. on Thursday, April 16, 2020 at Boxwell Brothers Funeral Home.
