70+ years of Religious Life

Today we celebrated the life of Sr. Marie Paul Denesha, osu. She was almost 92. Her funeral Mass took place at our Province Center in New Rochelle.

She was a magnificent 1st grade teacher in various places, Malone, NY, Wilmington, DE, Bethseda, MD, Springfield, MA and New Rochelle, NY. She was an expert in the Montessori method. In her later years, she was know for making rosary beads for so many. Sr. Marie Paul, osu really wanted to bring Jesus to all. All spoke so highly of her.

I remember best her calligraphy welcome signs to Malone whenever I came to visit and the hundreds of rosaries she sent me to give to my students.

Thank you Marie Paul for sharing your life with us. We will miss you but we know you're up there watching down on us. Please remember us in your prayers.

Sr. Jeannie Humphries, osu
