Jessie Agnes Madden, 92, of Wadsworth, Ohio, passed away Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at Legacy Ridge Memory Care Community in Gainesville, VA.

Jessie was born May 17th, 1929, in Cumberland, Maryland. The eldest daughter of Walter and Naomi (Robinett) Perdew, she married Edward Alvin Madden on June 27th, 1953. Jessie walked to work at the Ohio Match Factory for many years, and was later employed by the Wadsworth City Schools until her reluctant retirement at the age of 81. Jessie was both a faithful and long-time member of the Church of Christ in Wadsworth. She enjoyed spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, and visiting with friends. Her hobbies included puzzles and word searches.

She is deeply missed by her children, Edward Allen Madden of Savannah, GA, James (Marianne) Madden of Wadsworth, Mary Foote also of Wadsworth, and Michael (Jean) Madden of Springhill, FL; and her grandchildren Tatiana Madden of Islamorada, FL, Jennifer Madden of Manassas, VA, and Michael Foote of Wadsworth; her sisters Joan (Pete) Ahern of Lewisburg, WV and Barb "Sunshine" (Ron) Files of Carpenters Addition, WV.
In addition to her husband Eddie, Jessie was also preceded in death by her foster parents Bill and Peggy Weaver of Cumberland, MD, sister Mary Margaret Martin of Oak Ridge, TN and sister Louise Dawson of Cumberland, MD.
A celebration of Jessie’s life will take place on May 14th in Wadsworth, Ohio (location TBD due to COVID).
