Just got this from my sister. I'm very sad about her death, but her life was well lived.

The Warrenville Cenacle Retreat House, 29 W 012 Batavia Rd., Warrenville, IL 60555 Presents: Sr. Mary Meegan, OP, will present “Female Ancestors of Jesus,” a retreat exploring the lives of the women on the family tree of Jesus, on September 21-23 [2007]. Tamar, Rahab, Ruth and Bathsheba – these are the foremothers of Jesus mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew. Come and see what lessons can be learned from these courageous, resolute, sometimes faithful, sometimes faithless women who helped to prepare the way for the entrance of the Messiah into this world. Ninth Sunday
I remember Sr John Maureen as being very energetic and surely didn't realize she was so highly educated. Her photos are wonderful...a lovely smile.
