The first time I spoke to Madonna Wegloski I walked into her office with a question, but we were soon joking around. We laughed about the lack of scenic views at the Monitor. I pointed out that all we see in the newsroom is the top strip of the building next door and Madonna joked that all she saw was the parking lot. Most of my memories of Madonna are like this - short snippets of her life.
I remember her raspy laugh and how she joked about being the Monitor’s “greeter” in the mornings. Madonna treasured her Beetle convertible, even gave it a name, and knew all the ins and outs of the Landmark Corporation, right down to the shoes the executives wore.
So when I learned about her death last week, it was a jolt. Everyone seemed shocked and there was a gloom that hovered over the office. Madonna’s death means something different to everyone; for me, her passing reveals a missed opportunity to become acquainted with a fellow co-worker.
I had the chance to know a person who worked just down the hallway and I let it slip through my fingers.
