Madeleine (Maddy) Michaud passed away peacefully on Sunday morning, June 1 at the Hunt Nursing Home in Danvers after living several years with Alzheimer's Disease. She was lovingly cared for by her family, the staff, and the Compassionate Care Hospice of Danvers. 

Maddy was a lifelong resident of Salem and was a member of the former St. Joseph Parish in Salem where she belonged to Les Dames de la Ste. Famille. She was also a member of the DAV Auxiliary. Maddy worked several years at Shetland Park, Almy's and later for Caldors. She was a loving and caring person who cherished her family. Madeleine loved to knit, crochet, garden, bowl, cook, and spoil her grandchildren. Her smile and love will forever live in our hearts.

From that union she leaves two stepsons, Gary Michaud and his wife Nancy of Napa, CA, and Tom Michaud and his wife Cindy of Edmond, OK, and a step-son-in-law, Don Emilian and his wife Charlene of Wenham and their families.
