Sister Mauricita Stapleton, Age 81
Tuesday, October 6, 2020
Sister Mauricita used her keen mind in her teaching ministry in a number of schools in the Fall River, Massachusetts, diocese. Continuing her ministerial contributions, she served on the Salve Regina University library staff for a number of years. Exercising her affinity to care for people, she worked with sisters in assisted living.
An accomplished knitter, Sister Mauricita shared her skills with others who wanted to learn this art. In her life, knitting was a prayerful exercise. Those who knew Sister Mauricita well often saw her sharp wit come to the surface. She kept in touch with many people by phone. One recipient of her phone ministry said: “When I saw sister’s name appear on the phone, I knew I was in for a humorous chat. She always made me smile.” The memory of her will bring a smile to all who knew her.Donate in memory of Sister Mauricita Stapleton
