Musto, Madeline Elizabeth ROTTERMAN Madeline Elizabeth Musto, known to many as Maddie, gained her wings and joined God in Heaven on February 8, 2012. After a brief but brave fight with cancer she will now spend the rest of her 'best day evers' as an angel. Mad-eline was a vibrant, independent and lovely kindergartener. She was beautifully kind, positive and happy, so very happy. She was born in Albany on June 25, 2006 and has been an incredible blessing to all who met her every single day of her life. Maddie enjoyed playing with friends, school, drawing, running (faster than a cheetah), and swimming (because she wasn't just part fish, God made her ALL fish!). Her most treasured times were spent with her family, her sisters, her grandparents, her cousins, her aunts and unclesshe loved her family. Madeline inspired so many people in life and in death: to be happy, to smile all the time, to love and enjoy every moment with their family and to live like a crazy little Musto chick. Madeline will be so very missed. There is a piece missing in our family, but she is with God and all the other Angels now, and she has wings. We know that she will be with us for every family dinner, trip, sunset and moment in our hearts. She is survived by her parents, Matthew and Erin (Wilson) Musto; her sisters, Amelia and Lucy; her paternal grandparents, Richard and Anna Marie (Siragusa) Musto of Watertown, N.Y.; her maternal grandparents, Richard and Mary (Connor) Wilson of Brownville, N.Y.; her maternal great-grandmother, Dorothy Wilson of Watertown; aunts and uncles, Nathan and Jordan Musto, Travis (Lisa) Wilson, Rikki (John) Booth, Cortney (Damon) Kirkby and Molly Wilson. Maddie is also survived by her many beloved cousins, family and friends. Calling hours, to which relatives and friends are invited, will be held Sunday from 3-6 p.m. at DeMarco-Stone Funeral Home 1605 Helderberg Ave., Rotterdam. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated 10 a.m. Monday at St. Madeleine Sophie Church 3500 Carman Road, Schenectady, NY 12303. Burial will follow at Prospect Hill Cemetery, Guilderland. The family requests memorial contributions be made in Maddie's name to the Journey's Program at the Children's Hospital of Albany Medical Center, 43 New Scotland Ave., Albany, NY 12208.
