Madeline Badovinac, 72, of Waldorf, Maryland, died September 12, 2011, at her residence with Hospice. Born July 3, 1939, in Gaffney, South Carolina, she was the daughter of the late Haskell Bryant Thornton and the late Connie Duncan Thornton.

Mrs. Badovinac owned and operated Quality Carry-Out in Waldorf, Maryland from 1979-1982 and owned and operated Madeline's Catering throughout the late 80's and early 90's. She retired from the Department of Social Services after 29 years of service as a Child Support Enforcement Agent. She attended Pfeiffer College in Misenheimer, North Carolina from 1958-1961 before relocating to the Washington metro area.

She enjoyed spending time cooking for her family, visiting with her friends and writing in her personal journals depicting life's events and her courageous battle against ALS. Her radiant smile warmed the hearts of everyone that she came into contact with. We will miss her immensely.
