Sister Mary Kathleen O’Brien, Age 97
Tuesday, December 29, 2020
A Sister of Mercy for nearly 80 years, Sister Kathleen joined the Community following her two sisters, Sister Mary Denis and Sister Mary Virgilius. Also serving the church was their brother, Father Denis O’Brien.
Sister Kathleen spent most of her years as a teacher in the dioceses of Brooklyn and Rockville Centre in New York. In addition, Sister Kathleen cared for the babies at Angel Guardian Home and was among the first sisters from Brooklyn missioned to Panama in 1959.
Sister Kathleen will be remembered for her tremendous kindness, for the respect she showed to all she encountered, for her talent as an artist and for her ability as a seamstress. Her blue eyes and beautiful smile will be missed.Donate in memory of Sister Mary Kathleen O’Brien
