Sister M. Therese of the Child Jesus O.Carm. died peacefully at St. Patrick’s Home on the night of Friday January 31 st a short time after returning from the hospital where she had been for tests. Sr. Therese was in the 76 th year of her religious life.

Rosemary Anne Foley was born in Philadelphia, PA on August 19, 1929 to William and Elizabeth (nee Houston) Foley.She entered the Congregation on May 14, 1944 a few months shy of her 16 th birthday, received the habit on September 8, 1944, professed first vows on October 3, 1945 and professed final vows on December 8, 1950.She was missioned at Mary Manning Walsh Home (1952-1954); Josephine Baird Home (1954-1960); St. Margaret Hall (1962-1964); St. Joseph’s Manor (1964-1966); Sacred Heart Manor (1960-1962, 1966-1969, 1986-2009); Garvey Manor (1972); Carroll Manor (1972-1986), and, of course the place “where it all began” St. Patrick’s Home (1945-1952,1969-1972, 2009-2020).

Sr. Therese had a great sense of responsibility and was appointed the First Assistant and/or Bursar in several of her Missions. For many years she ministered to the residents in the areas of social service and admissions and demonstrated a strong sense of duty in carrying out her many responsibilities. She had a joyful spirit even in sometimes difficult circumstances and was loyal and trustworthy in every regard. Sr. Therese had a warm smile and was quick to laugh and have fun with the Sisters. She was prayerful, gentle and pure of heart, a beautiful religious who loved the Lord and gave herself totally to Him.

Having worn the Carmelite scapular throughout her long and holy life, and having died late on a Friday night, we trust that Sr. M. Therese of the Child Jesus entered into glory very quickly - on this the “First Saturday” following her death - a faithful Carmelite truly worthy of the Sabbatine Privilege.May her soul rest in peace….until we meet again.
