Madeleine Marie Therese Mactaggart (nee Hasselrot)

November 24, 1939 - July 23, 2017

With courage and determination Madeleine won the challenge against her chronic, progressive pain dying peacefully, as she wished, on Sunday July 23, 2017 at Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital. Madeleine will be remembered as a creative artist and fashion aficionado. She owned the successful "Sugar Puff" boutique on Main St. Picton for a number of years. Her needlework art and knitting/crocheting designs were always imaginative and one of a kind. After studying art in Stockholm, Copenhagen and Vancouver she held many exhibitions of her works. Living in Picton since 1982 Madeleine enjoyed an active social life with many friends, her beloved pets and the same joie de vive that was always her style. Cremation has taken place. Please join her niece, Christina Schwery of Zurich Switzerland in a celebration of Madeleine's life on Thursday August 10 at 2 pm. at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church followed by refreshments. Memorial donations to the Loyalist Humane Society would be appreciated. A life well lived and a death with dignity - well done Madeleine!
