Madeline was more than a grandmother to me, she was a light. She had a smile that filled my heart. It is so hard to imagine that smile being gone. She was the kind of woman that would run circles around you in a room even at her late age. I will miss late night card playing and her ability to bring family members together. Things will never be the same without her. I am so sad for her passing

What a warm, charming, and fun lady! There was always a game to be played and a laugh to be shared when you spent time with Madeline. We have such warm memories of our visit to Boston and the time we spent with her. We only wish we could have spent more.

Madeline (Nana) Connelly was a blessing to our lives , and an icon to our family. I feel like she was a part of all of us. She made me feel like there was always love to be given. Her strength is undeniable. And I will never forget her. I'll miss her sharp mind and and beautiful smile. I'm excited for Nana to finally reunite with my grandfather it's been a long time coming. I love you Nana.
