  1. I remember Sr.Joan Marie well. She was a beloved teacher at St.John the Evangelist School. I believe I was in fifth grade when I was in her class. She was so much fun. We were all blessed by the generous, loving work of the Sisters of St .Joseph of Carondelet.

  2. I knew Sister Joan Marie well as my 6th grade teacher at St Anselms 53′-54′. She was a great teacher and educater.

  3. I was sorry to hear of sister’s passing. She was very special to me. I was a student of her’s in 6th grade at St Anselm in 1954. I corresponded several times over time. She took me under her wing and made me believe in myself. She taught me that you can do anything you set your mind to and believe in your goal. I will remember her always.

  4. It was fun playing Scrabble with you and Sister Mary Claire while you were in Healy. Also visiting and drinking tea or coffee together.
