Monday, October 19, 2020
Sister Marian’s motto, “Where there is love, there is peace,” inspired her ministry as an educator. She served as an elementary school teacher and principal in the Archdiocese of New York and the Diocese of Ogdensburg, New York. After earning a degree in speech pathology, Sister Marian joined the faculty at Mercy College in Dobbs Ferry, New York, as a speech-language pathologist. Her students loved and admired her professional, soft-spoken manner and her ability to foster and encourage their success.
Sister Marian was a gifted storyteller who brought much laughter at community gatherings. She will be remembered for her listening ear, words of advice, quiet presence and love of learning. Sister lived briefly at Marian Woods in Hartsdale, New York, before joining the retirement community at McAuley Hall Health Care Center in 2014.Donate in memory of Sister Marian Cumiskey
