Russell Walter Cardinal

b. 17 February 1928, d. 14 December 1977
This is the special instructions
Russell W. Cardinal, High School Picture, 1945
     Russell Walter Cardinal was born on 17 February 1928 at Brighton, Massachusetts.2,3 He was photographed with members of his family in the spring of 1928 at Hanover, Massachusetts.4 Drafting/drawing tools that originally belonged to George Herbert Cardinal were handed down to his nephew Russell Walter Cardinal.3 When Russell Walter Cardinal applied for his Social Security Number on 24 May 1943, Russell was employed by the Mohican Market at Harvard Avenue, Allston, Massachusetts.1,2 He married Mary Margaret Cloherty, daughter of Peter Patrick Cloherty and Sarah Marie Clasby, on 23 August 1945 at St. Anthony's Church, Boston, Massachusetts. He was 17. She was 17.3 Russell Walter Cardinal was struck by a falling beam at a construction site and suffered multiple injuries, including the loss of his right foot on 4 November 1952.5 He was a mechanical engineer.3 He had a heart attack on 30 December 1964.6 He was hospitalized from 30 December 1964 to 14 February 1965 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Brighton, Massachusetts. He had a second heart attack on 10 January 1965 while in the hospital.6 He and Mary Margaret Cloherty moved to 98 Barnard Avenue, Watertown, Massachusetts, on 22 November 1968. Russell Walter Cardinal died on 14 December 1977 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Brighton, Massachusetts, at age 49.2,3,6 He was buried on 17 December 1977 in Ridgelawn Cemetary, Watertown, Massachusetts.6,7
     From Mary (Cloherty) Cardinal: "I met Russ in school. He was in school with me until 9th grade, when he went to Boston Technical High School and I went to Brighton High. He was our paper boy. My mother loved him. He was what you would call today a nerd--he always did his homework, always stood up straight. Alta didn't like my religion, and she tried to send Dad to Graceland College in Missouri to get him away from me. Alta had a nice Protestant girl picked out for him."5
     Alta evidently didn't see the similarities between how her father treated her when she married Walter, and how she treated Mary when she married her Russ.8
     Russell Cardinal was the author's father. The complications from his accident in 1952 led to a series of heart attacks in 1964, and eventually, to his death in 1977.8

Sarah Marie Clasby

b. 10 September 1896, d. 11 November 1977
Sarah Clasby
     Sarah Marie Clasby was born on 10 September 1896 at Oranmore/Tuom, Co. Galway, Ireland.1,2 She moved to Boston, Massachusetts, circa 1915. She married Peter Patrick Cloherty, son of Mark Cloherty and Bridget Joyce, on 18 June 1919 at St. Peter's Church, Cambridge, Massachusetts. She was 22. He was 25.2,3 Sarah Marie Clasby and Peter Patrick Cloherty moved to Kilcolgan, Co. Galway, Ireland, circa 1921 with Joseph Edward Cloherty. Sarah Marie Clasby and Joseph Edward Cloherty immigrated on 12 May 1922 to Ellis Island, New York, New York, aboard the Carmania.4 Sarah Marie Clasby witnessed the death of her daughter Margaret Cloherty on 26 November 1928.2 Sarah Marie Clasby became a widow at age 47 upon the death of her husband Peter Patrick Cloherty on 8 October 1943 at Boston City Hospital, Boston, Massachusetts.2,5,6,7 Sarah Marie Clasby was a dietician at William Howard Taft Elementary School, Brighton, Massachusetts.2
     From Mary (Cloherty) Cardinal: "[Joseph J. Cloherty] lived on Morse Street in Watertown. I took my mother to his funeral. When I was about to receive Communion, the priest said 'Body of Christ--is that Mrs. Cloherty?!?', referring to my mother [Sarah Marie Clasby] who was behind me. The priest had gone to the William Howard Taft School in Brighton, MA, and remembered her from when she worked there years before."8 She witnessed the death of her daughter Ann Winifred Cloherty on 1 February 1976 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Brighton, Massachusetts.2,9 Sarah Marie Clasby witnessed the death of her son Joseph Edward Cloherty on 20 December 1976 at Brighton, Massachusetts.2 Sarah Marie Clasby witnessed the death of her son Peter Joseph Cloherty on 5 January 1977 at St. Elizabeth's Hospital, Brighton, Massachusetts.1,2,10,11 Sarah Marie Clasby died on 11 November 1977 at Brighton, Massachusetts, at age 81.2,1 She was buried in St. Joseph's Cemetery, West Roxbury, Massachusetts.12
     Sarah was a very warm and loving woman. She had a favorite Gaelic expression which I would spell phonetically as "bock-lish-a-nish". Whenever we (her grandchildren) asked her what it meant, she would reply "Children should be seen and not heard", but always with a laugh in her voice. Peter Patrick Cloherty, his wife, Sarah Marie Clasby, and Sarah's sister Margaret Josephine Clasby share a headstone in St. Joseph's Cemetery, West Roxbury, Massachusetts.9
