Madison Marie Stogdill was born on April 15th, 1997. She graduated from Norwalk High School in 2015 and went on to graduate from the University of Iowa in 2019. Madison died on July 15th, 2022.
Madison is a daughter, big-sister, softball player, coach, and friend to all. Maddi was employed by the Veteran’s Affairs Hospital. She is preceded by her grandparents. She leaves behind her two loving-parents: Michelle and Steve Stogdill. Along with her younger sister Shelbi, and her two dogs Wrigley and Gibbs.
Maddi is an organ donor and has since donated her heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys. Her selflessness stretched beyond her last wish of donation. The last voicemail we have from her is Maddi pulling over to ask someone if they needed a ride because they looked lost. That’s who she is. Maddi went out of her way to give endlessly and love constantly.
Maddi loves the beach, her vitamin “sea”. She always went boating and came over to swim in the pool. She would become friends with every life she met. Maddi loves the game of softball. She not only played in college but plays slow pitch every week. She was so proud to coach on a team and made it a point to attend every game she could. Always being the biggest cheerleader for the people she loved. She loves crime shows and shark week and would get margaritas and queso with anyone who asked. She was truly sunlight wearing shoes.
Maddi, we wish we could see those ocean-blue eyes, gentle smile, and get that warm hug one last time.
Maddi’s visitation is from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Friday, July 22nd. Her Funeral will be at 11:00 AM on Saturday, July 23rd. Both services will be held at Sunset Memorial Chapel 7601 Fleur Dr., Des Moines, IA 50321.
