Remembering Madalene Daniell

Forrest General Hospital staff was saddened to learn of the death of Madalene Daniell, who for the past 44 years had overseen Forrest General Hospital’s Spirit of Women “Fitness for Two” classes. Madalene helped hundreds of women and their families across the Pine Belt, and we are so grateful for the wisdom and legacy that she leaves behind. We will always remember her love, dedication, and compassion for mothers and their families.
