She loved bow hunting deer and out fishing Roger at their favorite bass pond. Alene's favorite flowers were all of them, she could be counted on to always have flowers growing around the house. She also loved her cats and her affection for them rubbed off on Roger and he will now have to take over as the crazy cat lady of Savonburg. Alene had many artistic talents, some of her most famous were expressed in her jewelry that she made and in her painting. Alene and Roger owned and operated Madl Concrete from 1983-1998.
