Madge grew up on a farm about nine miles east of Orleans. “We had corn, wheat, milk cows, chickens, and hogs. We grew all our own food, almost everyone did. It’s a lot different than the way most kids are raised nowadays.” Madge started her education in a long past manner, a one room school house from first to eighth grades. “We did our chores then walked to school. Came home and did chores again before dinner and homework.”
Madge moved into Paoli Health and Living four years ago for rehab following back surgery. “I loved my stay for rehab,” she said, “they took such good care of me I decided I wanted to live here. It’s been very enjoyable, I’ve made lots of friends. This is my home.” Madge is active in and around the community as is her want. “I go to all the activities. I love them. I like to play bingo twice a week and I am a member of the resident’s council.”
