Mom married the love of her life, Charles Black, on August 7, 1965. They soon welcomed five beautiful daughters. Their marriage was later solemnized in the Manti LDS Temple. They were married for 56 years.
Madge worked from home as a beautician for many years and also drove the school bus.
She had a wedding catering business and catered a lot of weddings including all of her daughters. She did it all: the back drops, the food, and even sewed dresses for bridesmaids. Later on in life she graduated with an RN degree from Snow College and worked several years.
Madge loved to crochet, and sew and made many lovely blankets, quilts and gorgeous afghans. She sewed amazing personalized pillows with tremendous detail. Mom also enjoyed cross stitch and poured many hours into creating fun wall art for family and friends.
She loved tending to her many potted flowers through the spring and summer, she loved adding special lights and decorations to those flower pots. She very much loved their little dog Velcro.
