Madelon Rose Logue has come to live with us at Caring House. We are honored.
Madelon, also known as Ma to her children and grandchildren, was born in Glendale, CA. The second child of Fred and Hazel Caroline Williams Terzo, Madelon was raised in Tujunga, CA and attended San Fernando High School in San Fernando, CA. In her youth Madelon enjoyed sailing, fishing, hiking and writing.
She continued her education at Los Angeles Junior College in San Fernando where she majored in Life Science. Madelon met her future husband, Charles Edward Logue, Jr., at Los Angeles Valley College. They married on March 31, 1956 in Elkton, Maryland. Together they raised three children, James Edward, Margaret Hazel and Jennie Lynfred. Charles and Madelon have four grandchildren (David, Louisa, Diego and Stephanie). She has spent her life in Southern California, living in Tujunga, Kagel Canyon, Pacoima, Canoga Park and Los Angeles.
Madelon has continued to enjoy sailing, fishing, hiking and writing, along with traveling, painting, reading and listening to classical music and opera.
Madelon started a little magazine called “The Black Sheep” for people who enjoyed Jane Roberts and her “Seth” books. She was interested in psychic phenomena and at one time was known as the “Snake Lady of Canoga Park.” Her son James had snakes and Madelon would call the reptile house at the zoo when she had questions about the snakes. One time she was at the butcher store and bought a little tiny piece of fish and a lady asked her if it was enough to feed the family. Madelon told her it was for her son’s snake and everyone took a few steps back.
Madelon is a unique and eccentric person and has made many friends through her “Black Sheep” fanzine as she calls it.
We are glad that Madelon is with us at Caring House. We look forward to caring for this one of a kind, interesting and well-loved woman.
Madelon died on February 4, 2019. Honor her. Remember her.
