Mrs. Maddie was a native of Palmetto and Melville before moving to Baton Rouge and eventually Livingston, La.  Shirley loved to cook, being a wife to her companion of 54 years, Salvador Maddie, and a mother to her three children.  She loved her grandchildren and her great-grandchildren dearly.  Shirley was always a caretaker, someone willing to help others when needed and her beautiful smile and heart will be greatly missed by all of us.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Lyman and Violet Hall Coulon and her sister-in-law, Audrey Williams Coulon.
