  1. Loved Sister Margie, she was my 7th grade teacher at NAM in ‘74, when I would run into her many years later a few times, she always remembered me. God definitely just took one of the best?🙏😇

  2. S.Margie was a gem. After North American Martyrs School closed,S. Margie and her dear friend Sister Sophie were hired at neighboring Sacred Heart Catholic School in Florissant. Margie taught 2nd grade with us until she retired. Then she became a substitue teacher and taught in our PSR program for awhile. Everyone loved her smile, sense of humor and genuine care and concern she had for all of us. We love and miss you and know that you are with Jesus dancing, telling jokes and tending to your green roses!!

  3. Sr. Margie was my first grade teacher, she & Sr. Catherine would watch our puppy when our family would go out of town (they taught her how to jump on the couch!!). I loved just going to hang out with her at the convent. She still made me the best toasted Turkey sandwich that I can not duplicate to this day. I was so blessed she continued to be in my life through so many things. She met my beautiful baby girl and gave her a gift I keep in our living room. I’ve missed her greatly since she had to move out of St. Louis. I definitely could have used her smile in our life much longer. We will pray for her soul and now we have a new beautiful angel. (Wish we could be there for one last goodbye!)

  4. To our much-beloved Aunt Sr Margie. So glad to have visited you last week to see the twinkle in your eyes and the smile on your face. You now are united with your family, much loved Sisters and good friends. Your commitment to the Divine Providence Order and years of educating generations of many, makes us very proud of you. Also, knowing how proud you were of your Irish heritage, we are sure there’s an Irish festival in Heaven because we know God must be Irish too.
    Love you always and forever.

  5. Sister Margie was my first grade teacher and her love & kindness was something I carried with me always. My favorite memory of her was how she made all of us “summer birthday kiddos” feel special with a gift at the end of the school year. It was the only time I ever celebrated a birthday at school. She caught me cheating on a spelling test once and never said a word just marked my paper a zero and asked if it was my best work. It wasn’t of course and that taught me a great lesson. I loved Sister Margie, may she find peace and comfort in the arms of our Father in Heaven.

  6. Sister Margie , As I walk through St. Joseph’s Center I’ll always remember the twinkle in your eye, your loving smile, and our wave to each other. May Our Heavenly Father Bless each of us! As each day ends.

  7. I met Margie way back when our provinces were coming together to greet and meet one another. Margie and I were at the same table and shared our stories that bonded us as friends and sisters in community. That bond was always renewed when I was visiting in the St. Louis area and then when Margie moved to Pittsburgh. I always loved visiting her and enjoying her stories and her big smile. She would always say to me as I was about to leave, “I love you” and I would return by saying “I love you too, Margie!” We promised to pray for each other and now I feel like I have another “guardian angel” in heaven, looking out for me! I will miss visiting her in St. Joseph Center. May her spirit live on in all of us who loved her.

  8. Sr. Margie was truly a breath of fresh air, a woman of Providence who loved life and people. Evidenced in all the photos, she enjoyed life, loved adventures, painting, coloring, dancing, skiing. Family meant everything to her, and she was really close to her siblings and nieces and nephews as well. You couldn’t help being happy around Margie. She oozed energy and radiance! I will miss seeing her smiling face and visiting her whenever I was in Pittsburgh. Your Sisters here in the St. Louis area will always remember you, Margie! Rest in peace with the angels now.
