Madeline Ruth Cormier, 76, of Sale Creek, died on Tuesday, March 15, at a local hospital.

Madeline was a former employee with Target for many years and was known as the “Corn Lady” of Sale Creek.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Clyde and Edna Turner and great-grandson, Jaydon Baker.

Madeline is survived by her loving husband, George Cormier of 58 years; daughters, Patricia (Philip) Baker and Donna (Mark) Wachholz; sons, Stephen (Pamela) Cormier, Kevin Cormier all of Sale Creek and Bruce (Loriann) Cormier of Methuen, Ma.; grandchildren, Jeff (Heather) Baker, David Baker, Lindsay Reel, Lauren Reel, all of Sale Creek, Daniel Cormier and Renee Cormier of Methuen, Ma.; great-grandson, Holden Baker of Sale Creek and sister, Kathleen LeTourneau of Lakeville, Ma.

They say angels walk among us, and if they do, Madeline encompassed all that an angel would be. Her loving and unselfish manner was felt and held tightly by all that knew her. Not only a devoted mother, daughter, sister, grandmother and wife, Madeline was deeply devoted to her faith. This faith and belief in all that is good was palpable not only in her daily life, but rooted within the simplicity of life itself. Her ideals of looking beyond the ordinary, and recognizing the beauty of the moment was taught with confidence and conviction.

We as a family are both grateful and assured that our mother will now be under the winds and protection of our Lord, for whom she was ready to receive. We will forever hold dearly her most enlightened teaching of all; to recognize and be thankful for our own “little miracles” for the day.

The family will receive friends from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, March 17, and 1-2 p.m. on Friday, March 18, at the funeral home.

Services for Madeline will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday at the North Chapel with Pastor Barry Hildebrandt officiating. Burial will follow in Hamilton Memorial Gardens.

Arrangements are by the North Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home, Crematory and Florist.
