The resilient former fashion executive, who has discussed her long battle with suicidal thoughts and time spent in psych wards since losing her family in the 2011 fire in her Stamford, Conn. home, said on Facebook that she married real estate broker William Duke. The couple had been engaged for several months.
Madonna Badger — the mother of three who lost her young daughters and her parents in a Christmas Day blaze — has found love and remarried, she announced on Facebook.
The resilient former fashion executive, who has discussed her long battle with suicidal thoughts and psych wards since losing her family in the deadly 2011 fire, said she married real estate broker William Duke on Tuesday.
“We did it! Bill and I eloped today!” Badger wrote with a picture of the smiling couple standing in front of a church.
Scores of friends commented on the photos with cheers and good wishes for the happy couple, who had been engaged for several months.
“Congratulations!! You deserve all the happiness in the world, and MORE!” one friend wrote. “God bless you both!”
Badger lost her 7-year-old twins, Grace and Sarah, her 9-year-old Lilly and her parents, Lomer and Pauline Johnson, when her Stamford, Conn., home went up in flames.
Officials blamed the fire on embers taken from the fireplace that were placed in an outside mudroom.
