To the Fuller Family my deepest sympathy for the passing of Maddy. I worked with her at the Telephone Co and enjoyed her as my supervisor very much.She was always cheerful and we had a lot of laughs. We always looked forward to the little treat she would bake and bring in for us. She will always be remembered.
