Sister Margaret Patrick Marie, O.Carm.

Your prayers are requested for the repose of the soul of Sister Margaret Patrick Marie, O.Carm.  who passed away very peacefully at 7:45 a.m. on September13, 2015 in the 57th  year of her religious life.

Barbara Ann Manning was born on March 24, 1940 in Dorchester, MA., and entered the Congregation on September 7, 1958.  She professed first vows on June 9, 1961 and made her perpetual profession on April 17, 1966.  Sr. Margaret was trained as a lab and x-ray technician, and later obtained her administrator’s license.  She had several missions that were of brief duration including Our Lady’s Haven, Josephine Baird Home, Mary Manning Walsh Home, and Little Flower Manor.  She was also assigned to St. Joseph’s Manor, Trumbull, CT (1961-1966 and 1974-1978), Carroll Manor, Hyattsville, MD where she was appointed Superior/Administrator (1978-1985); Marian Manor, So. Boston, MA where she was appointed Assistant to the Superior and Assistant Administrator (1985-1987), and Catholic Memorial Home, Fall River, MA (1988-1991).  She received her final Obedience to St. Patrick’s Manor where she arrived on January 7, 1991.  She was admitted to the nursing home in July 2009, where she was lovingly cared for by the Sisters and staff.

Sr. Margaret Patrick had a great love for her family and an affinity for all things Irish. Blessed with a beautiful singing voice, she also had a keen insight into proper decorum and what was most  appropriate for a situation. She put these and many other talents at the service of the Community. Having carried the cross of illness for many years, may Sr. Margaret Patrick Marie now know the fullness of eternal joy as her Beloved Spouse takes the cross from her shoulders and exchanges it for a crown of glory!
