Necrology from Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet

Sister Mary Emmanuella Jacques died at St. Vincent's Hospital, Green Bay, Wisconsin, on the twenty-fourth day of April, nineteen hundred thirty-eight in the seventy-sixth year of her age and the fifty-eighth year of her religious life.

Our dear Sister Emmanuella was privileged to belong to a family that gave a son to the priesthood and two daughters and a niece to our Congregation.  Her sister, Mary Frederica, passed to her eternal reward about three years ago.

For over fifty years Sister Emmanuella labored in the classroom, ever drawing closer to God the souls of the dear children under her care.  Sister's life was characterized by a beautiful simplicity, gentle courtesy and sincere observance of all points of Holy Rule.  The early morning hours found her hurrying to the chapel to offer her first act of homage to her Divine Spouse.  The recreation hours were not less important to her than were the hours spent in chapel, and many a pleasant contribution to the community's happiness was made by dear Sister Emmanuella.

Sister's last years, filled with physical sufferings borne with heroic patience and serene cheerfulness, assure us that she was truly one of God's chosen souls.  Her resignation to God's Holy Will, the fruit of her life of prayer and sacrifice was a source of edification to all.

May her dear soul rest in peace!
