Sister Miriam Butz, Age 98
Sunday, June 28, 2020
Ministering in elementary education for more than 60 years, Sister Miriam taught in the Harrisburg and Scranton, Pennsylvania, Dioceses. Well-educated and an excellent teacher, her students won many diocesan awards, especially for writing essays. She served as principal at St. Theresa School in New Cumberland, Pennsylvania, for eight years and at Our Lady of the Blessed Sacrament in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, for 13 years. In her later years, she served at St. Margaret Mary School in Harrisburg as a language arts teacher.
A joy to be around, Sister Miriam's birthday was February 2, 1922 (2.2.22). She loved this fun fact and enjoyed telling everyone and celebrating each year. Born on Groundhog Day, her very favorite animals were her cats, who brought her much joy and comfort. When she moved back to Dallas, Pennsylvania, in 2009, she visited Mercy Center each day for liturgy and lunch. An inspiration to all, she aged beautifully and with grace.Donate in memory of Sister Miriam Butz
