In Memoriam

Help us remember our Sisters.

In death, we say our ultimate human yes to God. Trusting in God’s power to bring us to the fullness of life, we conclude our earthly life with an act of worship: in the action of death we proclaim God as God, and ourselves as God’s creatures. We are called by God and sent by the community; we go in joy!

Sister Liliette shared her many gifts, musician and guitar teacher, softball and cheer coach, youth minister, and Math teacher with a warm and friendly smile. As a first-year Aspirant, she said she would never leave religious life, a youthful desire to which she had been faithful during her 65 years of vowed life. May God welcome her home.
As a young girl Sister Mary Jane was inspired to become a nurse by the Public Health Nurses she encountered during her mother's extended illness. This experience proved significant and Sister Mary Jane became a licensed RN in 1970 from the University of Maryland School of Nursing. Her care for others was evident in all she did through many years of service in Baltimore and Florida. May Mary Jane rest in peace.
Always, friendly and outgoing, Sister Margaret was described by a niece as “exuding the joy of the Lord.”  Margaret was 104 years old and in the 84th year of her religious profession at her death on March 9, 2024. Her funeral and reception were held on her 105th birthday with over two hundred parishioners, 20+ SSNDs, and seven clergy in the congregation to bid Sister Margaret farewell and to celebrate her life. Cherished memories were shared by all who knew her.
