I'm so sorry to belatedly learn about Mrs. Maddex's passing. What a sweet, sweet lady! Janet Maddex was like a third grandmother to me - a constant in my life and I'm sure many others. She was always that dependable neighbor just across the street, always upbeat, always encouraging. Even when she gave up driving a few years ago, she remained sharp as a tack - she always recalled how much I liked apples as a child. She made my heart smile. Mary Jo, Chip and Craig, we share in your loss and celebrate her wonderful life!

I have so many wonderful memories of the many trips that Janet and I took to basketball games when Ken was helping Hunter coach. We would travel near and far and even would stop and eat where the team ate. She also sat with me at church. Janet Maddex - an awesome lady!!

So sorry for your loss. Mrs. Madder and myself became very close friends thru the years. I met her at my work place. We went to eat several times. She loved Arby's and would order the tiny little mint shake. Always loved her beautiful smile. Love you my friend and you will be greatly missed

Janet Maddex was an amazing lady. She was remarkable in her determination and her tenacity to live life to the fullest. At 102 years old, Janet was a shining light and beacon in the way she lived her life as a strong Christian. She had lived alone since 1979 when she lost her husband, Hunter J. Maddex, the late great athletic director, football, basketball, and track coach at Handley. Oh, how she loved those Judges! She bled Maroon and White and followed very closely the great successes of her beloved Handley High School. Today, we celebrate a great life and the passing of the torch as the First Lady of Handley Athletics is reunited with Hunter J. To Mary Jo, her grandchildren, and her entire family – we send our love and condolences. God Bless, Russ (Handley ’58) and Emily Potts
