Saint Marianne Cope, please Bless Sister Caryn Crook OSF and I whilst we pray together and whenever we pray and please help us to always pray Forever.
in a recent issue of the St. Anthony Magazine, I read an article about the Sisters of the Third Order of St Francis. I was taught by your sisters at the St. Paul Parish school in Philadelphia, I had many outstanding Sisters of your congregation as my teachers. One of them was a dear friend of mine for many years. At the time she was Sr.M. Tarcisia. She taught me in the seventh and eight grades.. That was 1942 and 1943. I want to high school, and Sister left for Peekskill, New York to teach Italian. We kept in contact, In 1960, I invited her to my wedding in September of that year, but she could not attend.. She was preparing to leave for Rome because she had been appointed the Mother General of the Sisters of the Third Order of Saint Francis. We kept in contact, and when she retired, Mother invited my husband and our four children to visit her at her nephew’s home. It as very close to my home. She was a lovely hostess and we had a memorable time .(I had a successful career in engineering and in teaching–as a result of Mother’s teaching. Mother Tarcisia remained a loving, humble, level-headed and dedicated Sister in the Third Order of Saint Francis—Respectfully, Se;ma Koury Wunderlich
