Madeline Mary Weigold Obituary
Madeline Mary Weigold of Tinton Falls, NJ passed away Wednesday, February 7 in the arms of her three loving children. Maddy left us as she lived, with elegance, a smile, laughter, some witty comments, and a great deal of love.
Maddy was born in the Bronx on March 31, 1928 to Madeline and Milton Glavin. She was soon joined by siblings Barbara and Gerry. Her happy childhood included trips to the Bronx Zoo, weekends at Rye Beach, and summertime family vacations at a farm in upstate Ocra, NY.
Maddy graduated from Mt. St. Ursula Academy in the Bronx, then went to work as a runner delivering messages and memos for U.S. Rubber in Manhattan. An original career girl, she then went to work for ""the phone company"" – New York Telephone, what would become AT&T – as a secretary, working her way up to Supervisor over the years.
Like many young New Yorkers of her generation, Maddy spent her weekends at the Jersey shore, taking a house in Spring Lake with her girlfriends every summer for 10 years. It was there that she met her husband, John Weigold. Their first meeting occurred when Maddy and her friends, hearing there was a party at the house John, his brother Fred and their buddies shared, knocked on the door one Saturday evening. Not to be deterred upon getting no answer, Maddy snuck through the bushes and peeked through a window to confirm if a party was indeed in progress. Her persistence was rewarded with the sight of a handsome firefighter who had just gotten off work. Thus began a relationship that culminated in 42 years of marriage.
Maddy and John wed on January 25, 1964 and set up house in Woodside, NY. Their first child, Patricia, arrived the following year, followed quickly by Susan and John. They raised their family in New City, NY, where Maddy was active in the Ladies Guild of St. Francis of Assisi Parish, served as PTA President of her children's school, enjoyed tennis and summers at West Nyack Swim Club, and eventually went back to work in the Rockland County Highway Department and New City Town Clerk's office.
Maddy and John moved to Ormond Beach, FL in 1994, enjoying 10 years of sunshine before moving back up north to watch their grandchildren grow up. They enjoyed life at Seabrook Village, including dinners out, theater, and good times with family and friends.
To everyone who knew her, Maddy epitomized elegance and grace. She was known for her impeccable style and fashion sense, which was superb, and she loved to shop and browse the racks for beautiful bargains. But beyond anything else, Maddy loved her family and was never happier than when she had her clan of children, sons-in-law, daughter-in-law, and grandchildren around her. She reveled in the milestones, accomplishments and personalities of her seven beautiful grandchildren, each of whom she loved fiercely and saw as the special and talented people they are.
Maddy joins her husband John and her sister Barbara DeRose in Heaven. She leaves her legacy through her loving family, including her daughter and son-in-law Pat & Craig Fiaschetti of Frenchtown, NJ, and their sons Christopher and Justin; her daughter and son-in-law Sue & John Griffin of Middletown, NJ and their children Kathleen, Claire, John and Madeline; her son and daughter-in-law John & Susan Weigold of North Hampton, NH and their son Jack; her loving brother Gerard Glavin of Rochester, MA; her sister-in-law and brother-in-law Kenneth & Gloria Weigold of Hamburg, NJ; her best friend of over 70 years Ann Maat of Scarsdale, NJ; and a wonderful group of nieces and nephews.
A celebration of Maddy's beautiful life will take place in The Atrium of Heron Point at Seabrook Village, 3000 Essex Road, Tinton Falls, NJ on Monday February 12 at 12:30 pm, to be immediately followed by a reception at the same location. To honor Maddy's zest for life, donations can be made to the Seabrook Village Benevolent Care Fund (c/o Ann Marie Matthews, Philanthropy, Seabrook Village, 3000 Essex Road, Tinton Falls, NJ 07753), or cheerful flowers can be sent to the service that will then be lovingly repurposed into bouquets to share with homebound residents of Seabrook Village.
