Friends and family gathered tonight at the Community Fellowship of the Nazarene Church in Waynesboro to remember the life of 22-year-old MaDee (pronounced "Madie") Boxley who passed away Tuesday of Hodgkins. This young lady packed into her short life more than many do in a lifetime.
"Strength for MaDee" wrist bands turned into "Love for MaDee" after her passing as the young people in the SWAC area gathered to honor one of their own who was a member of the Class of 2006 at Ft. Defiance High School, and who graduated from Roanoke College in December with a double major in criminal justice and psychology.
A Celebration of Life service will be conducted at 1 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Feb. 20, 2010, in the Community Fellowship of the Nazarene Church in Waynesboro by Pastor Jeff Griffith. Burial will be private.
Memorials may be made to Roanoke College, MaDee Boxler Cancer Assistance Fund, 221 College Lane, Salem, VA 24153. Henry Funeral Home is handling the arrangements. Condolences may be made to the family.
