GORHAM, MadisonPosted: November 10th, 2017
MADISON ELIZABETH GORHAM passed away in Edmonton, AB on November 5, 2017 at the age of 19 months. She is survived by her parents Zach and Megan Gorham; grandparents Peter and Colleen Drew, and B.J. Gorham; and aunts, uncles, and cousins. She was predeceased by her grandpa Berry Gorham.
Madison was a light to all those around her. Despite her short time on earth she had a far-reaching impact on many people for good. She had a radiant smile, an infectious laugh and a hilarious sense of humor. She had a great interest in people and would smile, wave, and say “hi” to almost everyone she saw. She had a way of drawing people in and wrapping them around her little finger. She went through immense health challenges that involved a great deal of pain and discomfort with grace, cheerfulness, and great bravery. She was a tenacious fighter and her resilience was awe-inspiring. She loved music, pens, water bottles, bath time, ripping up kleenex, and Peppa Pig. Words cannot describe the void she has left behind in her absence, nor the degree to which she is missed. We take comfort in the knowledge that she is with her Grandpa Berry in a much better world than this and that we will be with them again someday. We wish to thank all the doctors, nurses, and other staff at the Stollery Children’s Hospital in Edmonton and the Alberta Children’s Hospital in Calgary for their remarkable work with Madison.
The Funeral Service will be held at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Magrath Stake Center, Magrath, AB on Monday, November 13th, at 11:00 a.m.
Friends may meet the family from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. prior to the service. Interment to follow in the Spring Coulee Cemetery. In Lieu of flowers please donate to the Stollery Children’s Hospital Foundation and consider becoming an organ donor.
