Cassidy, Sarah Ann (Pat, Sally) age 94, died on November 13, 2016 in La Crosse, Wi. in the same way that she lived her life, gently and peacefully. She was born in Minneapolis, MN. on July 15, 1922. Sarah (her family and friends called her Pat or Sally) was preceded in death by her father Thomas Cassidy, her mother Caroline Fogg Cassidy, her stepmother Eva Luella Cassidy, her sisters Mary, Josephine (Dode), Susanna (Sue) and her brothers James (Jim) and Tom. She is survived by her brother John (Jack) Cassidy and many nieces and nephews (grand and great-grand). Her nieces and nephews include her niece Julie (Robert) Olson whom she raised, and their children: Angie (Jason), Natalie, Abby, Amie and Philip (Chenoah). Other nieces and nephews include: Tom (Pat) Michel, Patricia (Javier) Arriaga, Sarah Staggs, Kevin Cassidy, Brian Cassidy, Sheila (Don) Luce, Jim Cassidy and John (Meg) Cassidy, as well as another generation of nieces and nephews who live around the country. Sarah received a Bachelor's Degree from Rosary College in River Forest, IL. and her Master's Degrees in History and Library Science at UW-Madison. She worked at the Art Institute in Chicago, and Marquette University for several years before moving to Tulsa, OK, to take care of her family, and worked at Marquette Elementary School as the librarian. In 1968 she and her niece Julie moved back to Madison, where she had wished to spend the rest of her life. She was an active member of Queen of Peace Parish in Madison. She was the librarian for Queen of Peace School for more than 25 years, where she spent hours teaching children to love books and where she had so many friends. She cherished the cards the children made for her when she retired, and even when she moved to La Crosse. Sarah was an avid Wisconsin Badgers fan and saw generations of people attending and teaching at the University. She was a world traveller; her favorite place to visit was Ireland, visiting there with family and friends numerous times. Her many friends at The Shamrock Club of Wisconsin even honored Sarah by naming her Irish Woman of the Year, an honor which she cherished. Through her teen years Sarah spent her summers at her parent's summer home, called Beaver Lodge in Shell Lake, WI. In 1954 she built a lakeside home on Shell Lake that she lovingly called Pat's Amore. She hosted many family and friends at "the cabin," taking after the family tradition of hospitality. It certainly was her favorite place to be in summertime throughout her life. She spent holidays with beloved family across the country. She valued love, faith and education, and demonstrated these values with her active volunteering and financial generosity. Her retired years were filled with volunteering at shelters and soup kitchens across Madison. A fall in her home necessitated a move to La Crosse to be closer to family who could care for her. Though she did not have any children of her own, she was a matriarch of the Cassidy Clan. Sarah was a devout Catholic, a friend, aunt, mother and grandmother to many. Her family would would like to thank Hillview Nursing Home for the tender care they gave Sarah in the last 14 months of her life. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to Catholic Charities or other charities, libraries or schools in your communities in her honor. Mass of Christian Burial, Friday at 2pm, Basilica of St. Mary, 88 North 17th Street with visitation at 1pm. Interment at St. Mary's Cemetery . A reception will follow at Kieran's Pub in downtown Mpls. at 1pm on Saturday.
