I am writing on behalf of my mother, Mary Jane. Mom proudly related throughout her life that she was taught by your order during all 16 years of her education. Some of you may remember her from reunions and Ursuline events she attended.
Mom attended St. George School from 1936 to 1944, Ursuline Academy from 1944 to 1948, graduating in 1948, and Ursuline College from 1948 to 1952, graduating in 1952. Mom cherished her Catholic faith and appreciated the Sisters for their role in deepening her faith. You provided a quality education in other subjects, too. Mom earned a biology degree and became a medical technologist for a few years. Shortly after her college graduation, she married. Mom and Dad had 40 happy years of marriage and followed their Catholic faith in accepting 10 children from God’s grace. Two died at birth but Mom and Dad raised eight children to successful adulthood.
She nursed Dad in his last illness and he died in 1993. Mom lived 22 more years, as the beloved center of a loving family of children and grandchildren. The Lord called her to her reward of eternal life in September 2015.
In her will, Mom remembered her dear Ursuline Sisters. I am enclosing a check for her bequest to you. I know Mom would appreciate being remembered in your prayers.
I wish you continued blessings from our Lord.
