Madilynn was born July 9, 1997 in Clinton, Iowa and is the daughter of Chad and Carissa (Regenwether) Griffin. She is a 2015 graduate of Linn-Mar High School in Marion. Madilynn worked as a phlebotomist for Mercy Hospital in Cedar Rapids and was days away from enlisting in the United States Marine Corps.

Madilynn was passionate about dance and animals. She danced for The Dance Co. of Marion through high school and all the time at home. She loved all animals, especially her dogs, and was an advocate against cruelty to animals. She enjoyed music, socializing, and loved to shop. She had a fondness for elephants, hot fries, and rice crispy treats. She always lit up the room when she arrived and had the greatest laugh and sense of humor. She was very kindhearted and was always ready to help those in need and often gave good/sound advice. Above all, she loved her family and friends very much and will be sadly missed.

Those left to treasure her memories are her parents Chad and Carissa Griffin of Marion, Iowa; her brothers -Tanner (Olivia) Regenwether of Clinton & Damon Griffin of Dubuque; her nephew Jaxon Regenwether of Clinton, her grandparents Creighton and Peggy Regenwether & William and Bonnie Griffin, of Clinton; as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins, and many friends.

Preceding Madilynn in death are her great-grandparents Donald & Betty Kelly, Robert & Joan Regenwether, Eugene & Elaine Reynolds, and William & Helen Griffin.

In lieu of flowers, memorials and donations can be directed to the family for charities and expenses.
