She died Friday, June 14, 2019, in Norfolk.
Madison Faith was born July 31, 2000, in Memphis, Tenn., and was welcomed home to her permanent family May 5, 2004, to her parents, David and Lynn (Gronenthal) Reynolds. She graduated from Norfolk Senior High School in 2018.
Madison was loved by many. She was involved in volleyball, played flute and violin, volunteered with the Junior Optimist Club and later the Octagon Club, also starting 4-H as a Clover-bud from age 6 through senior year, making several projects still in the home that had been selected for the state fair. One of those projects being a multi-generational denim quilt made with her mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Another project was making a ladybug out of her great-great-aunt Pat’s bowling ball. But her real joy was tennis, winning or coming close to winning a lot of matches, and several most improved awards. Her parents loved following her to all her matches.
Her infectious smile, laughter and newly developed chuckle will be forever missed by whomever had crossed paths with her.
She is survived by her parents; Greyboy, her most beloved cat; grandparents Jim Sr. and Lois Gronenthal of Humphrey and Duane and Shirley Reynolds of Litchfield; great-grandma Ruth Schumacher; several aunts and uncles: Jim Jr. (Jeanne) Gronenthal of Humphrey, Mary Jo Gronenthal, Gary Gronenthal and Sandy (Jeff) Gaspers, all of Norfolk, Tamy (Mark) Bohac of Leigh, Cindy (Eldon) Briggs of Coloma, Mich., Steve (Janice) Reynolds, Joan (John) Kohls and Mike (Sue) Reynolds, all of Litchfield, and Sheri (Cleo) Papke of Minneapolis, Minn.; and several cousins who were all loved dearly. Also survived by several friends who she treasured her time with.
Madison was preceded in death by a sibling, who God needed more in heaven; her paternal great-grandparents; maternal great-grandfather; and cousins Jacee Gronenthal, Alex Reynolds and other cousins who God took too soon.
A huge thank you to the many people throughout her life who have helped mold and shape her into the beautiful young lady she was. We appreciate everyone one of you. She was loved by many!
