Sister Mary Noel Frey, Age 83
Sunday, October 11, 2020
Sister Mary Noel entered the Sisters of Mercy of Cincinnati in 1954, a few months after graduating from Union Building High School in Upper Sandusky, Ohio. Her early ministry included teaching elementary and secondary education at St. Vincent de Paul, St. Catherine and McAuley High Schools, all in Toledo, Ohio, as well as at St. Mary’s Mansfield.
In addition, Sister Mary Noel ministered as a hospital chaplain for more than 25 years, providing care at hospitals in northern Ohio, including St. Charles Hospaital of Oregon, and Lorain Community Hospital and St. Rita’s Medical Center in Lima. In 1992, she received the Woman of Achievement Merit Award of Recognition and the 1993 Elizabeth Coleman Award for her outstanding ministry to the Lorain community. Then, in 2011, she was further recognized as a Legend of St. Rita’s for her pastoral work at that hospital.
Sister Mary Noel retired in 2012 to St. Bernardine Home in Fremont, Ohio, where she shared her gifts as a liturgist, organist and sacristan.Donate in memory of Sister Mary Noel Frey
