Madison "Maddy" Bourne, 15, of Tipp City, passed away on Wednesday, December 5, 2018.
She was born on October 15, 2003 in Troy, Ohio to Marlen and Pamela (Large) Bourne of Tipp City, Ohio.
Maddy was truly a giver of love which made it extremely easy for those who received it to return the favor. She had a strong passion for young children and utilized that passion by serving in children's ministry at Bible Fellowship Church. Not stopping there, she also served as Aunt Maddy to her 5 nephews and 2 nieces. She poured her heart into those around her expressing the unconditional love that Jesus Christ had given to her. She demonstrated that love thru gifts of homemade baked goods and crafts, friendship, gentleness, and a smile that never stopped giving. She impacted everyone she ever made contact with and will be sorely missed by all.
In addition to her parents, Maddy is survived by her sisters, Sonya Sessor of Celina, Ohio, Ashley (Blake Hicks) Dunlavy of Tipp City, Ohio, and Alexis Bourne of Tipp City, Ohio; her nieces and nephews, Hannah, Ethan, Hailey, Brayden, Blake, Gunnar, and Jase; her paternal grandparents, Terry (Yvonne) Bourne of Arcanum; her maternal grandparents, Roger Large of Arcanum and Regina Hughes of Dayton, Ohio; her aunts, Lora Shuttleworth of Tipp City, Ohio and Tammy (James) Smuzok of Vandalia, Ohio; and numerous cousins, and friends.
