Madge Eubanks Johnson, age 98, left this life on Saturday, November 30, 2019. She was born on December 19, 1920, in Buckeye, Arkansas, to Leonard and Ora (Calico) Eubanks.

Madge was a co-owner of Richland Handle Company and worked many years in the nursing profession at the Huntsville Hospital. Jean and Madge were blessed with seven children.
