Madigan, Victoria Kathleen (nee Malkow)

September 5, 1921 to December 12, 2013

With sadness we announce Vicky passed away peacefully at age 92, in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Vicky was predeceased by her Grandson Glen Madigan in 1988 and Daughter-in-law Anna Madigan (nee Greene) in 2005 and is survived by her children Allen (Brenda) Madigan, Mike (Joyce) Madigan, Marg (Wayne) Black, Shirley (Enos) Kyle, grandchildren Tanis (Bob), Tracy, Terry (Dale), Jody (Cody), Jamie (Lorie), Kerry, Lynn (Eric), great grandchildren Drew, Wade, Mark, Kaylee, Kaitlyn, Kara, Samantha, Jamison, Brady, Avery, and Brianna, nieces and nephews Joan (John) Lombardi, Phillip (Jeanette) Malkow, Donny (Janice) Malkow, Rick Malkow along with many other relatives and friends.

Vicky was very active in the town of Telkwa. She hosted many dinners for the Kinsmen, was involved in directing and participating in local theatre, was a busy hands-on hockey, baseball, skiing and skating mom for her boys. She did accounting for Madigan Equipment.

She will be remembered for always being there to help when needed. She would come in her camper van; hence, she got the name “Grandma with the Van.” She was a beautiful seamstress and also creating knitted creations for each of her grandchildren.

She taught us to make her traditional Borsch & Perogies and how to can preserves over the years. She was always full of life and loved a good prank, even if it was played on her.

To all who had the pleasure of knowing her or whose lives she touched are very blessed. Her memories will be in our hearts forever, and she will be greatly missed by us all.

There will only be a private family service in the spring of 2014.
