Sister seemed to be at home with all of God’s people being open to learning about them and being willing to serve wherever the Spirit led her. No one can deny that she did more than her share in building up the body of Christ.

August 24, 1924 - June 8, 2011   |   Passed On

As the oldest child in a large family, her parents looked forward to her help; but when she told them of her plans to become a sister, they considered it a blessing for their family. It was also a blessing for the Sisters of Humility, each student, parent, and person with whom she came in contact.

Sister Mary Ellen Freeman

August 16, 1943 - December 24, 2016   |   Passed On

We can easily find her quilt square in the large quilt at the bottom of the stairs. Look for the yellow square, with a “smiley face” in the second row from the bottom. Around it are blocks representing important aspects of her life: CHM community, family, prayer, service, and fun. Mary Ellen said she loved to laugh and thought she could make others laugh too.

Her sense of humor lightened many a moment. Like her Irish mother, she had a humorous streak which often brought a laugh or tickled the funny bone. Her strong sense of purpose, love of nature, and introspectiveness reflected her father

I would like to paraphrase a verse which Sister Edith wrote for those 8th grade students on the occasion of their reunion: `I lift these hands dear God, to you in praise and thank you for all you did-you lit the path through all my days and blessed me with your loving ways.`

Msgr. Joseph McDonell once was quoted as saying that sister was an `advertisement for the Christian life,` as she prayed the rosary while walking each day; but it seems that phrase could apply to her entire ministry whether it be making children laugh as a leprechaun or a pumpkin, feeding hungry mouths with rolls and cookies, or inspiring others with her outward sign of faith by saying the rosary during her daily walk.

September 5, 1915 - October 27, 2010   |   Passed On

`When I think of Marycrest, I fondly recall my first teacher, Sister Mary Agnes Clare. She was my kindergarten teacher from Marycrest in 1943 and my college instructor in elementary education classes from 1956-1960. Her gentle perfection served as an example to me as a child and as a young woman. I appreciate even more today her dedication, her beauty, and her humility.
