Madaline Braiden

Was born in Cleveland on July 24 th, 1918.
Lost her mother 8 months later.
Was adopted by her paternal uncle and brought to Toronto, Canada.
Lost her second mother at age 16, in 1926.
Received special permission from the Canadian government, at age 13, to enter the work force as she had exceeded her school studies.
Lost her adoptive father at age 17.
Lived through the great depression on her own.
(her biological father, William F. The guitar player, died in the fifties, a tool and die man, who lost 3 fingers on his left hand)
She met her husband, Harry Braiden, on a blind date, in 1939.  One of thier first dates was to see the premier of the wizard of Oz.
They married on Sept 4, 1943.
She got pregnant on her honeymoon and had a total of 8 children.
I'm number 8.
She made all her own clothes.  She made all her kids clothes.
She loved Eric Clapton and Stairway to heaven was one of her favourite songs.
She never learned how to drive until 1965 and one of her first outings was to take me to kindergarten....and she was T-boned by a woman in a Cadillac who ran a stop sign.
She listened to me and my brother, John number 7, play all her favourites on the guitar, on the afternoon of March 7th, last week.
After everyone left and my only sister, number 3 child, and myself were holding her hands, she died at 9:12 pm.

I just wanted you guys to know a little bit about her.  Not for sympathy, not for attention. 
Just because she was my Mom and she was extraordinary.

People outta know that.
