  1. Offering my condolences on Sisters Passing. She was my teacher in 8th Grade and the Prinicipal of St. Joachim Catholic School here in Madera for several years. Her name comes up quite often in the Catholic Community here in the Central Valley.

  2. Sister Martha Louise was my first grade phonics teachers at Marymount Jr. School. She was such a wonderful woman of God! I think about her all the time and tell my children about her kindness. I look forward to spending time with her in Heaven one day.
