 Madison Ryann Switzer’s Memorial Fund

Madison Ryann Switzer “Maddy” of Red Deer age 15 months, died unexpectedly on January 19, 2015 at the Red Deer Regional Hospital. Maddy was born on October 8, 2013 in Red Deer to Amy and Jon Switzer. During her short stay on this earth Maddy touched so many lives. With an infectious smile, a friendly wave “hi” and adorable “dance moves” people couldn’t help but smile. Maddy and family just returned home from a three week road trip and made many, many amazing memories. From the lights of Las Vegas to meeting Dora. Maddy was always jovial and certainly the center of attention. Big brother Cole loved playing, singing and dancing with his little sister.  This little girl will sure be missed by many, parents, Amy and Jon; brother, Cole; grandparents, Cindy and Richard, Kathy and Barry; aunts and uncles, Tyler, Maghan, Nick, Travis and Anne-Marie. ” Now Maddy is listening to “Frozen” and dancing with the angels.”

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, January 23, 2015 at 1:30 p.m. at Living Stones Church, 2020 – 40 Avenue, Red Deer, Alberta.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Maddy’s honour may be made online or directly to A Better World Canada, 103, 5033 – 52 Street, Lacombe, AB T4L 2A6
