  1. Sister Maureen was my 6th grade teacher in Tucson, AZ back in 1971. Her guitar playing and singing with the class inspired me to pursue music as a vocation and secondly as a career.
    I moved to San Francisco to attend the Conservatory of Music majoring in classical guitar on a full scholarship, and now I teach various musical instruments at the San Francisco Community Music Center for almost 20 years.
    I’m hoping I can pass on even a little of the spirit she passed on to me.

  3. Sr Maureen (Georgette Petrone) was in my CSJ reception class. We both entered right out of high school. We received the habit in 1963, and took our first vows in 1965. And we both had our tonsils out the same day! I went into nursing and left the Order in 1967, but we still kept in touch, up to a few years ago. My condolences to her family. Carmen Vigil, formerly Sr Michael Carmen, CSJ.
