My husband and I had Miss Slattery in kindergarten in Willsboro in 1951. She was kind gentle and had beautiful long black hair. My husband was smitten with her. To impress her he wore his western shirt and squinted his eyes to resemble Roy Rogers. We to this day speak of her with such fondness. We are now 72 years old and still think of her with a smile on our face. So sorry for your loss!

My deepest sympathy to Eva’s family and friends. I loved working with her at Momot where her beautiful smile always made us happy. She loved her students and they loved her. God has a new angel in heaven. Rest In Peace, beautiful lady.
