Madeline Ann McCollor Madeline was born in Detroit, Michigan on November 3, 1942. She was the daughter of Anne and Louis Tucker. She graduated from Dominican High School and Academy before moving to Minnesota to work with Heinz Ketchup Company. She then became the assistant to the station president at KSTP Broadcasting Company. She met the love of her life, Jerome McCollor, and they were married at a Catholic Church in Detroit on April 4, 1964. They moved to White Bear Lake where they raised their three boys. They were very active in three different parishes throughout their 53 years in White Bear Lake. These churches were St. Mary of the Lake Catholic Church, St. Genevieve Catholic Parish, and St. John the Baptist Church. Madeline even taught catechism at St. Mary of the Lake. Her entire family can remember how faithful she was to putting her hair in curlers EVERY Sunday evening without fail. After the kids were older, Madeline went to work for Kowalski’s Market and Electric Courts. When she was not working or taking care of her family, Madeline loved to travel. Her most memorable road trips were to Las Vegas, Alabama, Arizona, and Mississippi. When she was back in Minnesota, she enjoyed going to the casino in Hinckley to gamble with Jerry. At home, Madeline loved to do crosswords, play Scrabble, start a card game, or watch tv. More than anything, her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the center of her world. At holidays, Madeline was the one who would get everyone together to celebrate and she would decorate the house. Her most memorable dishes were her turkey stuffing and cheesy potatoes. She had a soft spot in her heart for the Loaves and Fishes organization at church and was a loyal donor. She will be missed by all who knew her. Madeline passed away unexpectedly at St. John’s Hospital on Saturday, March 10, 2018, with her family by her side.
