and French. Mady was an excellent dancer, especially to swing band music, and could dance to any music. Other activities she enjoyed included being with friends, traveling and reading. As president of the Fort Polk NCO Wives Club, she served the
office with elegance, dignity and grace. Some of the fun events she organized were formal evening dances, concerts, afternoon teas, fashion shows, children’s Christmas and Easter parties, and numerous charitable events. Mady retired from her civil
service job after 20 years. We are heartbroken at our loss and Mady will be dearly missed.
