Madeline became a legal secretary and worked in Chicago, Bay City, Mich., and Davenport Iowa. She married Robert McPherson on Sept. 18, 1954, at St. Henry’s Catholic Church in Chicago.

Madeline’s greatest hobby was to share 57 years of her life with her husband, Robert. She loved seeing her family grow healthy, happy and accomplished. Madeline’s children have a combined total of eight professional degrees between the two of them. She was also a woman of great patience, understanding and other innate qualities that only her family will remember forever.

Madeline is survived by her beloved husband, Robert; loving children, Thomas Weir McPherson and Heather Anne (Paul) McPherson Richards; cherished grandchildren, Sydney, Catriona, Natalia Grace, Joseph, Carley Ann, Gina Marie and Gabriela; other relatives and friends.
