Margaret Ann "Muffet" Flott

Obituary Condolences

Margaret Ann "Muffet" Flott, 47, of Sycamore, Ill., went to be with Jesus on Sunday, March 11, 2007, in the University of Wisconsin Hospital in Madison after a five-month struggle with cancer.
Born Aug. 22, 1959, in Belvidere, she was the daughter of Fleming and Margaret Susan (Haugen) Flott. She grew up in Belvidere and graduated from Belvidere High School. She graduated with honors with a degree in special education from Illinois State University. Muffet was a member of Kappa Delta Sorority. She obtained a master's degree with honors in special education from Northern Illinois University.
She was employed for 26 years as a middle school special-education teacher in the Kaneland School District. She was a volleyball coach, student council adviser, an announcer at track meets and a general "cheerleader" for all school activities. Everything was done with great enthusiasm and attention to detail. Muffet spent more than 30 years as a volunteer for Special Olympics, serving on the state games committee and as a coach for the Rockford Special Olympics team. Muffet was chosen as Illinois Volunteer of the Year in 2001. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Belvidere and a former member of the DeKalb-Sycamore Junior Women's Club.
She also held memberships in the National Education Association, Illinois Education Association and Kaneland Education Association.
Muffet was a great sports enthusiast. She supported the Chicago White Sox, Detroit Lions, L.A. Lakers and the NIU Huskies and, of course, the Kaneland Knights. She was happiest when shopping for that special gift for a friend or relative.
She is survived by her parents and a brother, William, all of Belvidere; two cousins, Cynthia Carpenter of South Carolina and Robert Flott Jr. of California; an aunt-in-law, Dorothy Flott of Chicago; numerous second cousins; and all of her "kids" from Kaneland schools and Rockford Special Olympics. She's looking down on them now with that beautiful smile.
She was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents and two uncles.
The funeral service will be held at 11 a.m. Friday, March 16, at First Presbyterian Church in Belvidere, with the Rev. Dr. Robert Kopp officiating. Burial will be at Belvidere Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5-8 p.m. Thursday and from 10-10:45 a.m. Friday at the church.
Memorials can be made to Muffet's two favorite things, the Special Olympics of Illinois and the Kaneland School District.
