Carolyn Ruth Thompson Madill, 78 entered her heavenly home on January 31, 2019.

Carolyn was a long time resident of Dade City, moving here in 1960 from Atglen, Pennsylvania. She was born October 24 1940 in Scranton, PA to Robert Landis Thompson and Jane Evans Goodrich. She graduated from Octorara High School in 1958 and attended Florida State University.

She was a confident, beautiful farm girl growing up and was active in her church, lettered in field hockey and was the recipient of multiple equestrian awards.

After moving to Florida she had several occupations including medical secretary for Drs. Deal, Brownlee and Graves, financial aid officer at PHCC and insurance administrator for Jackson Memorial Hospital where she met her future husband, Allen.

They married in 1968 and set off on many adventures with their five children. According to her kids, life lessons were administered daily at "Camp Carolyn". 

She welcomed people from all over the world into her home-no matter who or how many. She tirelessly worked to care for others with her main focus being how she could serve her church. She was a licensed pilot, certified scuba diver and a long distance truck driver - enjoying many trips with Allen. 

She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Allen Madill.

She is survived by her stepmother, Fran Thompson, her brother Robert F. (Pranee) Thompson, her children Marsha Madill and Linda Garrison of Loveland, CO, Melvin (DeDe) of Weeki Wachee, Jack (Andrea) of Dade City and Chris (Connie) of Zephyrhills, 9 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her special niece Theresa McNeal (Chris) and 2 great-nephews, 2 step brothers, Rick (Shannon)and John Howard, her lifelong friend, Betty Neuhauser and her beloved Daniela Rothlin, the daughter of her heart along with many beloved cousins and "kids of her heart". 

A Celebration of Life was held February 9, 2019 at First Presbyterian Church in Dade City. 

In lieu of flowers, Carolyn requested donations be made to First Presbyterian Church of Dade City for the construction of a prayer garden.



Carolyn's life story is certainly a testimony to her heavenly father.  May many fond memories and God's love give you comfort.  Jim Landis
