Madison Peco

Our most precious love, Madison Claire Peco, left this world on Saturday, March 18, 2017, and is resting in the arms of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She is in the Heavenly realms where there is Joy Unspeakable and Full of Glory, still our heart aches.

Please join us for a Celebration of Life Service, to honor this beautiful soul, at First Baptist Church of Franklinton, 903 Cleveland St. Visitation was held from 5 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Thursday, March 23, and continues after noon on Friday, March 24, until the time of the service at 2 p.m.

Those of us that know and love Madison can testify there is a light that shines from within her. She has a special kind of brightness even on the darkest day. She is the laughter and sweetness that reassures our heart in her presence, an advocate for the underdog. She is a leader, a strong voice in fairness and forgiveness. She is polite and respectful and loves little children, big families (that’s a good thing) and her faithful and loving friends. She is strong in faith and mighty in belief of the doing good unto others. Never full of a dull moment, she’s funny and she’s vivacious and always carries a willing heart … all these attributes that are God given make her a warrior, a priceless treasure for the Word of truth and trust. We will miss you our little sparkle.
