Hanson baptized

Madelyn Jean Hanson, the daughter of John and Julie Hanson of Romeoville, was baptized Aug. 17 by the Rev. Gregory Rothfuchs at St. Joseph’s Church in Lockport. Her godparents are Mary Newton, Madelyn’s aunt, and Lou Santangelo, Madelyn’s uncle. Madely wore her great-grandmother’s wedding dress, from the World War II era, which had been made into a baptismal gown by her grandmother.
