Rosemary Noele Emily Krier Madewell 12/1/64-5/12/07

Row, Row, Row, your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily,
Life is but a dream

Noele Madewell gently rowed out of this world on May 12, 2007.
Please come to our celebration of her life, Sunday May 20th, 1:00pm @ The McDade Watermelon Festival Grounds

Take 290 E towards Houston, McDade is approx. 10 miles past Elgin.
Look for the M&J Valero Gas Station on the left to know you’re getting close.

Make a left at the White Church & the old abandoned gas station (Waco St.), then make a right on Austin St. (Right after the post office) then make a right on Bastrop Street and look for watermelons.
