Madelyn Lee Payne was born 26 October 1922 in Peru, Kansas, United States to Rolla Charles Payne (1892-1968) and Leona Belle McCurry (1897-1968) and died 2 November 2008 Honolulu, Hawaii, United States of cancer. She married Stanley Armour Dunham (1918-1992) 1 May 1940 in El Dorado, Kansas, United States.

Mother of Stanley Ann Dunham, Barack’s grandmother. She died before seeing her grandson elected. It was reported she had cancer and other ailments.

There was no funeral. Apparently, she was put on ice, until Barack could find time to have a family memorial and cremation for her a couple months later. Caught up in his glory, he finally went to Hawaii on vacation, where he threw his grandmother’s ashes into the ocean while the paparazzi snapped the photos for posterity. Madelyn’s place in the cemetery next to her husband Stanley remains empty.
