Madeline ‘Maddy’ Elizabeth Raubuch


BRAZIL — Fear Thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Isaiah 41:10


Madeline “Maddy” Elizabeth Raubuch, 87, Brazil, changed her address to heaven on Tuesday, April 29, 2014, at St. Vincent Clay Hospital. She was born Feb. 21, 1927, in Keego Harbor, Mich., to Joseph and Bertha Doyle.

Maddy was known for her thoughtfulness and love for life. She always was thinking about others and how she could make them feel better. She never forgot birthdays, holidays, or just “thinking about you” days. She loved her handcrafts, quilting, cross stitching, painting, sewing, and enjoyed working with woodworking projects with her beloved husband Jack. She was mainly a housewife, but worked for Red Coat Cleaners for several years. She was a member of the Apostolic Church of Jesus Christ, and loved her church and Bible reading. She lived her life on the verse Isaiah 41:10; through all her health issues she never feared, knowing God would take care of her.  

On Aug. 27, 1947, she was united in marriage to Harold “Jack” Raubuch, who preceded her in death on March 13, 2012. She was a resident of Cloverleaf Healthcare, where she became the “life of the party.” She had many friends there and participated in every activity, and was the council president for two years. Maddy was everybody’s friend. She learned how to text and was on Facebook on her tablet. She always amazed those around her for her hunger and love to learn something new.

Maddy was preceded in death by her devoted husband; her parents; her sister, Norma Jean Gibson; two brothers, Lewis Doyle and Joseph Doyle; and a granddaughter, Faith Elizabeth Raubuch. She has left her memories to a son, Pastor Jacob Raubuch (Lotus); a daughter, Lynette Wojcik (Bob); three grandchildren, Katrina Raubuch, Lori Wojcik, and Aaron (Eva) Wojcik; and two great-grandchildren, Oliver and Stella Wojcik, whom she just visited with this past weekend. Her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren were her pride and love. She also leaves a sister-in-law, Betty Vanatti; and a niece, Deloris Shultz, from Arizona, who visited her every summer.

Funeral services will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday, May 3, 2014, at Moore Funeral Home, in Brazil, with Brother Robert Nevins officiating, and burial to follow at Bee Ridge Cemetery. The family will accept friends Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. at the funeral home and Saturday from 10 a.m. until the time of service.
