Madelyn Frances Kirkpatrick
Madelyn Frances Kirkpatrick, 96, of Lewisburg, passed away Jan. 23, 2020, in Fort Myers, Fla.
She was born Aug. 23, 1923, in Sunbury, a daughter of the late James Robert and Stella May (Wiest) Adams.

Not long after graduating from high school, she married Robert Glen Kirkpatrick in Sunbury in 1942. As it was war time, Robert served the country in the Navy while Madelyn worked in Baltimore. She gave birth to their first child, Georgia Lee (Buchheit) in 1944 who passed away in 2011.

Madelyn, Maddie or Mat, worked at various office jobs most of her adult working life in Maryland and Pennsylvania. In 1965, she moved with her family to Selinsgrove and eventually retired with her husband there. After her husband's death in 2003, she moved to Lewisburg.
In her earlier years, she had an interest in art and flying airplanes and claimed to actually having soloed at one point. She retained her mental alertness and good humor for all of her 96 years.

She will be greatly missed by her family and friends who loved her and whom she loved. She is survived by her son, Richard Ray and family, Kathy, Katy (Kirkpatrick-Hoover) husband, Seth, and Keegan; her daughters and their husbands, Robin Jan Storm, Michael, and son, Nathan Stover, and Dawn Gayle Washko, Patrick and daughter, Rachel; and her dear niece, Barbara See; and nephew, Ronald Adams.

She was preceded in death by one brother, James Robert Adams Jr.; and one sister, Evelyn Lipps.

Her family very much appreciates the care she received from Evangelical Hospice in Lewisburg and Hope Hospice in Fort Myers, where she spent the last few weeks of her life.
