Madison Elaine Magee
Sept. 23, 2002 Sept. 29, 2009
Madison died at home in the arms of her parents on Sept. 29 after a brave battle with brain cancer. A celebration of life will be held to honor Madison at 10 a.m. on Oct. 10 in the Main Dining facility at California State University, Stanislaus in Turlock.
Madison was born on Sept. 23, 2002, in Modesto. She was in the first grade and loved school. She enjoyed puzzles, movies, swimming, karate and playing with her sister and cousins. Madison loved life. She found joy in everything around her and the inner beauty she possessed flowed out over everything she touched. The immediate positive effect she had on people of all ages was apparent from the first moment of contact. She was and will remain a reminder to all of us who knew her of what love and friendship really are.                                                                                                                                                           
Madison is survived by her parents, Shawn and Keri Magee; and sister, Shannon of Ceres; grandparents; Gregory and Jeri Van Vooren, of Hughson; aunts and uncles, Chelsea (Mike) Wilson, of Turlock, Kyle Van Vooren, of Modesto and Brent (Julie) Van Vooren, of Turlock; four cousins; great grandparents, Yvonne Alvari, and Bob and Myra Chapman.
Madison was preceded in death by her grandma, Elaine Marie Gleason of Washington.
