Charlotte A. Madigan, 59

Haverhill — Charlotte A. (Hood) (Ford) Madigan, 59, of Haverhill, died on Thursday, October 3, 2013, at her home.

Born in Beverly, she was the daughter of Richard H. Hood and Margaret M. (Hynes) Ford, and was raised by her stepfather, Robert Ford. She was a graduate of Triton High School, Class of 1972. She received her nursing education at Whittier Tech.

A caregiver all of her life, Charlotte was employed as a licensed practical nurse, serving patients at the Oxford, the Glenn, and Baker-Katz nursing homes. She loved taking care of people, especially her family. She never kept still. A crafter, she loved sewing, and she enjoyed shopping, not so much for herself, but for someone in need. Spending time with her two cherished grandchildren, Dylan and Lillian, was the highlight of her life.

The widow of Benjamin F. Fall Jr., who died in 1988, she leaves a son, Caleb B. Fall, of Haverhill; a daughter, Haley L. McAninch and her husband, Shawn, of Bradford; her companion of 12 years, Ernest E. Olenio of Haverhill; a brother, Richard P. Ford of Lowell; two sisters, Maureen S. Ayles and her husband, George, and Mary M. Thibeault, all of Hampton, N.H.; her husband, Timmy L. Madigan of Bradford; and several nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her brother, Daniel R. Hood.
