R.I.P Sr. M. Anthony Rosarie, O.Carm.

Sister Helena - Friday, December 06, 2019

Sister M. Anthony Rosarie O.Carm. died peacefully at St. Patrick’s Home on the morning of December 5, 2019 in the 71 st year of her religious life.

Gloria DiOrio was born on August 25, 1929 in the Bronx to Thomas and Adeline (nee Zezza) DiOrio, who had immigrated to the United States from Italy. Sr. Anthony entered the Congregation on September 7, 1948, received the habit on March 20, 1949, professed first vows on April 12, 1950 and made her final profession of vows on December 8, 1954.

Sr. Anthony’s lengthier missions included St. Patrick’s Home (1950-1953,1960-1968, 1975-1977, and 1992-2019); Josephine Baird Home (1955-1959 and approx.1968-1975); Mt. Carmel Home (NYC) (1959-1960 and 1977-1980) and St. Joseph’s Manor (1980-1992). Sr. Anthony’s other mission assignments were all for very brief periods of time at Catholic Memorial Home, Our Lady’s Haven, and Cathedral Faculty House.

Sr. Anthony’s ministry was mainly in the clerical area, including personnel records clerk, resident billing, computer data entry, and various types of office work where she assisted with typing and filing. Her last 27 years were spent at St. Patrick’s Home, where to provide her with the care she needed, she was admitted to the nursing home in September of 2016.Sr. Anthony is survived by her sister, Emma Matarazzo, as well as nieces and nephews.

During these days of Advent as we prepare for the coming of the Lord on Christmas Day, let us also be mindful of His coming on the last day marked out for each of us. We trust that in the depths of her heart and soul, Sr. M. Anthony Rosarie was prepared to meet the Lord when He came, and that she now and forever abides with Him in peace and joy.
