Madison was involved in a fatal head-on collision with a truck on the Brisbane Valley Highway at Esk at about 5pm.

Her uncle, David Lynham, described Madison as a “kind and generous” girl with an infectious smile who was always there for her loved ones.

“Madison was a kind, loving, and generous person who touched the lives of everyone she met,” he said.

“She was always there for her friends and family, and her infectious smile and laughter will be missed by all who knew her.”

Madison’s father, Michael, said he wanted to thank everyone in the community who had thrown their support behind the family after the loss of his “beautiful girl”.

“I would like to thank the local community for their support, as well as the support that we have received from my work colleagues and family.”

Since the announcement of her tragic and untimely death, an outpouring of dedications were posted on Facebook by family, friends and various community groups.

Toogoolawah State High School principal, Ross Jardine, described Madison as a “gentle spirit” filled with kindness and dedication, who made a lasting impact on everyone she knew.

Madison’s former dance studio Starlite Dancers, as well as Toogoolawah Swimming Pool and Community Gym, Esk Show Society and countless friends and family have taken to Facebook to share their sadness.

Ipswich Community Youth Service also offered assistance to the family if needed.

Madison worked as an NDIS care worker, who loved being able to take care of others, deeply caring for her ladies.

The funeral service for Madison will be held from 11am on January 18 at the Toogoolawah Showgrounds. Madison’s Go-fund-me page, created by Mr Lynham, has almost reached its goal of raising $15,000 in support of her funeral costs, and continues receiving more donations.
