Mrs. Stanczyk was born on Dec. 29, 1923, in Kansas City, KS, the daughter of Ralph and LaVarah (Dawkins) Beebe.
She was united in marriage to Ernest “Ernie” Stanczyk on June 9, 1944, in Abilene, TX. He preceded her in death on June 7, 2000.
She is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Linda and John Condemi of Las Vegas; four sons and two daughters-in-law, E. Kenneth Stanczyk of Beatrice, Lonnie Stanczyk of Salem, OR, David and Judy Stanczyk and Bobby and Shauna Stanczyk, all of Lincoln.
She also leaves to cherish her memory, 15 grandchildren and 19 great-grandchildren.
As a young child, Madelon moved with her family to Texas, where she received her education and graduated from Eula High School. She then moved to Abilene where she worked at the American Optical Company. It was in Abilene, where she met and married Ernie. After he was discharged from the military, the couple moved to Nebraska to a farm north of Ashton. After two years, they moved to another farm five miles west of Loup City.
In 1958, the couple moved to St. Paul where Madelon enjoyed being a homemaker and raising her family. After Ernie's death, she continued to live in St. Paul until Oct. 2009, when she moved to Lincoln to be near her children.
Madelon was a member of Sts. Peter & Paul Catholic Church and its Council of Catholic Women.
She enjoyed macrame, ceramics and her beloved cats. She loved watching Monday night wrestling on TV and the Dallas Cowboys. And most of all, Madelon was always very proud of being a Texan.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by her parents; step-father, Calvin Morris; and a sister, Theresa Benefield.
Memorials are suggested to the family's choice.
