SR.CAROLINE (1937 – 1999)

Sr. Caroline was a  teacher in one of our schools.  She decided to join the convent and was received to the novitiate.  When she was professed she went back to her teaching.  She worked in many of our convents in Kerala, Mathilekam, Konniyoor, Mundakayam, Trichur and Palliport.  Besides teaching she was a keen gardener.  She was very particular about the practice of her vows, particularly poverty.

Sr. Caroline was sickly person and had constantly to go to the doctor for various ailments.  On June 29th she got sick and had to have a scan.  She was diagnosed as having reached the last stage of stomach cancer.  Who knows how much she suffered before that, but she never complained.  She was in the hospital for two weeks and then got steadily worse.  She realized that she was nearing the end.  She asked pardon of all the sisters and prepared herself for the final call.  She was conscious to the end and died peacefully.
