Phyllis Ann Slattery Hallahan (85), a resident of Vienna, VA since 1969, and a member of Our Lady of Good Council Catholic Church in Vienna, died on March 12, 2012 at her home, surrounded by her loving family.

Mrs. Hallahan was born in New York City and earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from the College of Mount Saint Vincent in Riverdale, NY.

Shortly after graduation, she married Robert Francis. Hallahan, a recent graduate of the United States Military Academy and married in July of 1948. As an exemplary Army wife Mrs. Hallahan moved their family to 11 different military posts both in the United States and Germany. While Col. Hallahan served his final assignment with the Joint Chiefs of Staff at the Pentagon, they settled in Vienna, Va., where they have lived to the present time. Mrs. Hallahan taught in grade school in New York City and Virginia then used her organizational skills to volunteer as a confidential correspondent in the Office Of Presidential Appointments and Scheduling for the twelve year period of the Reagan and H.W. Bush Administrations.

Mrs. Hallahan was the consummate hostess. She found great pleasure in entertaining family and friends while serving epicurean masterpieces or at the piano as she treated guests to her extraordinary voice while playing show tunes.

Mrs. Hallahan was a devoted mother and grandmother. Her greatest happiness and pride was in her family. She is survived by her husband of 63 years, her daughters, Ann Marie H. Peters (Ken), of Georgetown, Kathleen H. Zeifang (Don) of Falls Church, Louise H. Stakelin (Bill) of Cincinnati, Mary H. Kushan (Jeff) of McLean and sons Robert F. Hallahan III (Joann) of Reston, and John S. Hallahan (Lisa) of Orinda, CA. She also is survived by 15 loving grandchildren and her caregiver, Gershon Bundu.
