Madonna and her five siblings were raised by homesteaders on a ranch in Montana.
She moved to Oakland, Calif., where she met her first husband, Houston, and married six months later. They moved to Alabama, where they had three daughters, then to Michigan where their last daughter was born. From there, they moved to New Jersey, then to Pennsylvania in 1967, which was her home for the last 50 years.
