SR. KATHLEEN POWER RIP 1926 - 2008


Sr. Kathleen was from Buttevant, Co. Cork where she was born on August 16th 1926. She was one of three children. She attended the Mercy Convent School where she excelled academically. Having finished school she was successful in the Civil Service Examinations and started working in Customs and Excise in the Custom House. After several years working there she entered the Holy Faith Congregation in October 1953. Just two years ago she celebrated the Golden Jubilee of her Profession.
She spent some years in California teaching in our Schools in Los Angeles. She was an avid reader and loved Poetry and Literature. When she returned from the States she became Librarian in the Mater dei Institute in Drumcondra, where she served for many years.
Art and Music were other interests she held dearly and in her latter years she took up Calligraphy as a hobby and became quite proficient at it.
Sr. Kathleen was blessed with a very friendly disposition and spoke to all whom she came in contact with.
The Lord called her to Himself on Good Friday, March 21st 2008.
May she rest forever in the Peace of Christ.
