In this section of our website, you will find a short entry about the life of each of our Sisters who has been called by God to embark on her eternal life. No doubt you will find inspiration in reading how each one responded to her calling while on earth. We pray to them to help us on our journey.

If you knew one or more of these Sisters personally, or are connected through family ties, or simply like what you read, please contact us and tell us what you would like to add to that entry.

"The death of those can never leave us free from grief whose friendship during life was a solace and delight." Saint Augustine, City of God.

Angela was living in Limerick when she entered MMM in October 1954.  She was already 50 years old and had lived a very interesting, though disciplined, life having had long experience in the British Army Corps. She had much to contribute to life in MMM.

Her first mission assignment was to Ethiopia, where she formed part of the MMM staff in the inter-nunciature in Addis Ababa. She later moved to ministry in the more rural parts of Ethiopia. She took part in the opening of Clinica Metcha, where she worked for two years before returning to the delegation for a further three years.

On her return to Europe in 1969 she was assigned to the apostolic delegation in London. Later she was assigned to Drogheda where she nursed Mother Mary for a time, and then spent several years looking after the Sisters' refectory.

She had a very practical turn of mind and dealt with all emergencies with competence and efficiency. She was also noted for her great sense of humour.

She is remembered as an energetic and courageous person, reminding us of the 'few' in 'The Charge of the Light Brigade'. She was nothing daunted, a real provider!

In 1994 she was one of the founding Sisters to move to Áras Mhuire .

She died in 1995 and is buried in Drogheda.
