    Evanston, Ill
    December 29, 1954

    Dear Rose:
    We received your nice card and were glad to hear from you, but sorry that you hurt your leg and had to go to the Sanitarium. I hope you are feeling much better now and will soon be well.
    Ann Phelan like it very much at Sacred Heart and enjoyed meeting you and Genevieve.
    It is good of Genevieve to think of having us out and I wish we lived nearer so we could see each other oftener. Right now we are rather tied down on account of Will's illness. He suffered a severe stroke almost five years ago and has been an invalid ever since.
    He lost his speech as well as being paralyzed and lately he does not see very well so it is quite pitiful.
    If you or any of the family have a car, and are out this way, we would love to see you all. I often wish I had learned to drive when I was younger - We might have kept Charlie's car. We still miss him so much.
    Well, we had good Christmas weather - It was nice getting out to Mass under the stars. The rest of the week has been so unusual with rain, snow, wind and today thunder and lightening. I'm afraid there will be many accidents.
    Father Charles Sullivan came out to see Will the Sunday before Christmas. He looks real well now but I think he has too much to do. The Jesuits work hard.
    Perhaps someday we can get together and have a good visit. In the meantime we all wish you and yours health and happiness in the new year.
    Sincerely yours,
    Mary Connor.3

    Chicago Suburban Daily Herald, October 10-12, 2009
    Margaret A. "Mickey" Paluch Margaret A. "Mickey" Paluch, a dedicated servant of the church, passed away. The Paluch and Rafferty families, the J.S. Paluch corporate family, and the church, mourn the loss of Margaret A. "Mickey" Paluch. Early Thursday morning, Oct. 8, 2009, Margaret, the beloved mother of nine, grandmother of 17, and chairman of the board of the J.S. Paluch Company, died after suffering a severe stroke on Wednesday evening. The wake was Sunday, Oct. 11, from 3 to 9 p.m. and will be Monday, Oct. 12, from 3 to 7 p.m. at Ryan-Parke Funeral Home, 120 S. Northwest Highway (two blocks south of Touhy), Park Ridge, 847-823-1171. The Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday evening at 7:30 p.m. at St. Paul of the Cross, 320 S. Washington St., Park Ridge, with the burial taking place on Tuesday, Oct. 13. The procession will depart the Ryan-Parke Funeral Home at 10 a.m. to the final destination at All Saints Cemetery in Des Plaines. Mickey Paluch's personal lifelong commitment to the church has been inspiring and remarkable. In keeping with her spirit, the J.S. Paluch Company, a major national religious publisher providing the Catholic community with worship aids, inspirational music, Sunday bulletins, calendars and computer software, shares its resources with parishes across the country. The Paluch Family Foundation was established by Mickey in 1995 and funds liturgy, stewardship and vocations projects. Award recipients are chosen for their witness to the gospel and service to the church and their community. In particular, the area of church vocations held a special place in Mickey's heart and was a primary focus of her personal commitment. In 1985, she established the company's National Vocation Awareness Division, which supports vocation ministry in the church and underwrites an annual national vocation seminar. In recognition of her devotion to vocation ministry, the National Religious Vocation Conference (NRVC) presented its John Paul II Award to Mickey in 1987. In 1989, the National Conference of Diocesan Vocation Directors (NCDVD) bestowed its Stewardship Award on Mickey and, in 1995, established the Margaret A. Paluch Award in her honor. This award is given to individuals who make outstanding contributions to vocation ministry. Mickey had been a member of FATICA, an organization that supports vocation ministry. She often contributed her time and resources to fundraising for the archdiocese and for religious orders, and had personally given financial assistance for seminary study costs. In 1991, Mickey established the Endowment for the Margaret and Chester Paluch Chair of Theology at the University of St. Mary of the Lake Seminary in Mundelein in support of that effort. In 2007, Mickey received the Pope John Paul II Seminary Leadership Award from the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) Seminary Department in recognition of her distinguished service to Roman Catholic seminaries in the United States and Canada. Marianist Brother Bernard F. Stratman, executive director of the NCEA Seminary Department remarked, "In presenting the award to a lay woman, the department affirms the qualities of creativity, leadership and service of individuals who contribute to the development of effective priestly formation programs in the U.S. This award honors the memory and the legacy of Pope John Paul II." The most durable of Mickey's legacies can be seen in the lives of her children and grandchildren. Mickey instilled a love and appreciation of music. In the words of her family members, "For most of her family and friends, the most vivid memory is Mickey with a microphone in her hand, poised in front of a piano, belting out 'Georgia.' Now, Mickey is singing in a more heavenly venue." In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the Paluch Family Foundation, c/o Mary L. Rafferty, J.S. Paluch Co., Inc., 3708 River Road, Suite 400, Franklin Park, IL 60131. For more information about Mickey Paluch go to www.jspaluch.com and www.wlpmusic.com.
