Carmelite Events

R.I.P Sister Rosemary Ann Rubocki, O.Carm.

Sister Helena - Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Sister Rosemary Ann, O.Carm. died peacefully late in the evening of November 18, 2016 with the Sisters and her family present.  Sr. Rosemary was in the 34 th year of her Religious Life.

Rosemary Ann Rubocki was born on January 13, 1950 in Joliet, IL to Paul and Elizabeth (Elias) Rubocki.  She originally received the Habit on March 30, 1970 but left before making final profession.  After five years she entered again on June 4, 1982, professed temporary vows on June 5, 1983 and professed perpetual vows on December 8, 1984.  Always responding to a call to Carmel, Sr. Rosemary also spent time in a Carmelite Monastery and a Carmelite Hermitage as a transfer Sister.

Sr. Rosemary’s assignments included St. Joseph’s Manor, Villa Teresa, Ferncliff Nursing Home (1985-1991), St. Teresa’s Motherhouse (2003-2007), St. Margaret Hall (2007-2013), and was twice at  St. Patrick’s Residence, most recently since 2013. Over the years she served as Prioress, Assistant Administrator, Postulant Director, and Community Archivist, during which time she assisted in preparing the documentation needed to advance the Cause of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa.  Having been trained as a Social Worker, Sr. Rosemary was the Director of Social Service while at St. Patrick’s Residence the first time.  During her second assignment there, as she carried the cross of illness, she again tapped into her social work training by extending a listening ear to residents and families and offering them her prayerful support.

All the Carmelite Saints and all the Carmelite Souls have welcomed Sr. Rosemary Ann into the heavenly kingdom, and we rejoice in knowing that she now beholds for all eternity the face of the Living God.
