My parents Dr. William and alice Russell entered the SPHCC in late December. The first day there i saw your mom sitting all alone in the dining room and she seemed to be uncopmfortable. I asked her if i could help her in any way and she replied that she was in pain and just wanted to go back to her room. I talked to the nurse who was present and she quickly came over and gave her something for the pain. I offered to take her to her room but found out that was one of the many rules they have- only staff or relatives can do this. She never forgot this small kindness and siubsequently became the first person that i befriended at the care center. I know that you will all miss her very much and she will be missed by her friends at the care center also. She was a very kind and thoughtful person and i feel privelidged to have had the chance to know her. Sincerely, John Russell

To all my wonderful cousins in Sun Prairie I really am incapable of describing the loving feeling I always got from your Mom. Words could never describe the joy.laughter, caring, compassion and wisdom that she shared. It's funny what we remember from our early childhoods. It seemed like the Slattery Family in Sun Prairie was living some kind of parallel existence that mirrored our family in South Milwaukee. Everyone was older than me... People coming and going... Chuck filled Bob' s niche. Kenny and Gene seemed like Rick. Tom was just like Jim. Judy, Barb and Colleen were Kathy and Terri... don't you feel a little sorry for the small families sometimes? And heading it all up was this wonderful woman who was so much like my own Mother... except she didn't have to discipline me; she could be and was the perfect aunt.; one who you could feel had lived life like she meant it; who survived the hard times with honor, digity and a great sense of humor; loved her family; respected everyone. We had a small private joke for years. She and your Dad were my Godparents and I would call her my "fairy godmother". She would say "not much of one", and I would tell her I would let her know when I needed one. In my heart I knew she would be there if I needed her to be. Without a doubt. There are so many memories of trips to visit on Sundays, and they are all such precious, wonderful memories. Some times it was funny. The afternoon we waited out a tornado watch in the cellar of the big house on Flint Street. I believe there were refreshments taken downstairs. The time Jimmy took me with him and we arrived after everyone was in bed. Jim just slipped us upstairs to bed and the next morning Margaret acted like she was used to having this happen every breakfast. I got the idea not much could rattle her. So many more, all pleasant, all cherished. I was so fortunate to have her as an aunt. I don't mind telling you she was my favorite and I loved her. I will always have the best of memories. I am sorry I can't attend her service. My wife Jackie and I have a challenge we are dealing with. I would love to see all of you and Margaret's Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren and to celebrate her life with you. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Slattery Family, You have our deepest sympathy. We got to know Margaret a little better while she was at Sun Prairie Health Care Center with Vern's mother, Laura. Laura really enjoyed having lunch and dinner with her and she was sad to learn that Margaret has left us. We also really enjoyed visiting with her and getting to know her. She had a great sense of humor and always made us laugh. It was especially fun discovering that we are distant relatives and talking with her about family genealogy and family memories. Vern chatted with her briefly last Friday during lunch and he is so glad that he had that last chance to talk with her. We will be out of town this weekend and can't make it to the funeral but we will be making a contribution to the Sacred Hearts Endowment Fund in her name. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Vern & Phyllis Buskager

A call or letter from Grandma was like getting a bouquet of sunflowers it always made me smile. Once in college I had probably spent my grocery money on clothes or something stupid and I got a card from Grandma that was a bouquet of sunflowers with $5.00 in it :) I never forgot the card said sending you rays of sunshine and smiles. I let her know I ate at burger king for over a week they had 2 burgers for a buck :) She lived an amazing life and touch so many people lives and I only wish I was able to be there to celebrate her life. Selfishly, I wish she was still here but I am comforted knowing that she is dancing in a field of sunflowers with not a care in the world that she can't dance :) I love all of you and am so glad this is the family I was blessed with :)
