Dear family of Madge,
We are sorry to hear of Madge’s passing. She taught me everything there was to know about “time and demand” notes when I worked summers at The New Martinsville Bank. What a gal! She made coming to work so much fun for us summer college students. She also introduced me to warm Banana Cream Pie from Quinet’s. If no one ordered one on Friday morning, she did.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all in the coming days. Love, Bart and Joyce (Indermuhle) Wiggins

Like everyone else in New Martinsville, I loved Madge‼️ What a terrific, wonderful and absolutely all-around lovely human being. Even with all the heartbreak in her own life, she was a breath of fresh air, and ALWAYS made me feel very special. I’m so sorry for her loss. She will be missed, but her memory will be cherished. My condolences and my sympathy. Much love to all her surviving, loving family members. Linda Parish Hill
