Madeleine Verly, born in Feuguerolles-sur-Seulles in 1897, died in Caen in 1995.
Initially a nurse, she later worked as a social worker. In 1942, she joined the Resistance, first with the F2 network, then with the Samson network. Her status as a social worker for the SNCF enabled her to carry a wealth of information on enemy positions and the Atlantic Wall in Normandy on her train journeys.
