WAUNAKEE, WI – Grace Buffington Hyslop, at the age of 101, peacefully passed away on Friday, August 11, 2017 at the Waunakee Manor.

At her side, were staff and caregivers who have dutifully and affectionately looked after her for the past eight years as well as Agrace Hospice staff who have caringly guarded over her comfort and gently guided our family through her end of life. Our undying gratitude to each and every one.

Our amazing Grace was born July 9, 1916 in Camp Douglas, WI, the daughter of the late Eugene and Gertrude (Moe) Buffington. A devoted mother, Grace made a home for herself and son, Tom, in Waunakee where she was employed by the Waunakee Telephone Company and then TDS from which she retired after over 40 years in 1985.

Grace is survived by her son, Tom (Cheryl) Hyslop of Goodyear, AZ; grandson, Trip (Cindy) Fuchs of Sebastopol, CA; great-grandchildren, Sage and Jasper Fuchs in addition to many loving nieces, nephews and their children, Terry (Al) Westergard, Sue (Greg) Evans, Pat (Jim-deceased) Sampson, Mike Rosier, Connie Alexander, John (Lin) Bauman, Dick (Rosaline) Hyslop, Bill (Emma) Hyslop, John (Bonnie) Hyslop, Jeff (Diane) Brown, and Karla Winningham.
