OBITUARY ~ MADONNA METZ

August 20, 1922 ~ December 21, 2010

A celebration of Madonna's life will be at a private ceremony with her family, as she wished.

Madonna was born in Mount Ayr, Iowa, on Aug. 20, 1922. She graduated from Mount Ayr High School and then headed to Amarillo, Texas, to live with her sister.

Madonna met Curtis "Dutch" METZ in Amarillo while working at her sister's cafe. They were married on Feb. 11, 1942. He preceded her in death on Feb. 12, 2003. Madonna worked as a cafeteria manager for many years in several schools in Amarillo before retiring.

Madonna and Dutch raised four children, Rodney, Drena, Karen and Cheryl, in Amarillo. Madonna was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great-great-grandmother. She loved spending time at her summer home in Taos, where she had a variety of friends - two-legged, four-legged and feathered. Madonna had a wonderful smile and a great sense of humor. She loved traveling, quilting, feeding birds and reading.

Her family remembers her fondly for her silly quotes: "This room isn't big enough to cuss a cat in," or "Don't put your shoes on the bed, it's bad luck." Madonna had an amazing green thumb and grew the most amazing African violets and roses.

Madonna's legacy will live on with her children, a son, Rodney METZ and wife Judy of Wellington, Kan.; three daughters, Karen METZ and Drena WELTY and husband Wayne of Albuquerque, and Cheryl CARROLL and husband Trent of Amarillo; grandchildren, Kevin and Jill FRADY, Don and Lynn METZ, John and Sandy METZ, Paula and Tracy DAYTON, Alanna JIRON and Caitlin CARROLL; 12 great-grandchildren; and three great-great-grandchildren.
