Madelyn Jane Pykles

Madelyn Jane Pykles

October 22, 2012 - October 24, 2012

The meaning of the name Madelyn is woman of Magdala.  Magdala is Aramaic in origin (מגדלא) and means “elegant,” “great,” or “tower.”

The meaning of the name Jane is “God is Gracious.”

As her name suggests, Madelyn Jane Pykles was indeed an elegant and great soul. She was also as strong as a defensive tower, fighting for life from the second she was born. Although small and frail, the mighty gifts she gave us in the short time she was here manifest God’s grace in full force. God is truly gracious to have blessed us with this special child.
