Madelyn (Carr) McAdam, 90, of Thomaston, CT passed away suddenly on Sunday July 1, 2018. She was the wife for 65 years of the late George E. McAdam.
She was born to the late Carroll and Christine (Ivy) Carr on March 31, 1928 in Littleton, Maine.
Madelyn worked for the Thomaston Board of Education for many years as a cook and “lunch lady” at Black Rock School. She loved children and she loved to read and play Scrabble. In her younger days, she and George went square dancing and bowling with a group of couples. She lived a quiet peaceful life and never expected fanfare.
She enjoyed many trips with her beloved George to Europe, the Caribbean and most recently, trips to Isla Mujeres, Mexico with the “gang.”
Madelyn is survived by two children: Claudia Laxar and her husband Kevin of Stonington, CT and Brian McAdam and his wife, Maryann Sandford of Thomaston, CT. She is also survived by her granddaughter, Erin Chasse and her husband Todd and six great-grandchildren, as well as her sister Mildred Corey and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her sister, Edith Fournier and her brother Allen Carr.

Family and friends who wish to attend the burial are asked to go directly to the cemetery for a brief service.
Life isn't a matter of milestones, but moments.
