Archival Remembrance:

Sister M. Angelo McNulty is well remembered as a good religious and a devoted teacher. She taught in a number of our parish school, including our former mission at Saint Andrew’s parish in Portland, Oregon. For several years she taught at Marywood Seminary, where her art lessons were a real contribution to teachers and students. During the twelve years she taught at Our Lady, Queen of Martyrs School, Forest Hills, she enriched many children by her splendid teaching and by helping them in their interest in art and music. She kept in contact with her pupils in later years, encouraging them in their higher studies. In her pristine days, she gladdened the Sisters with whom she lived by her splendid culinary art. Even when her illness prevented her from teaching, she made a real contribution by preparing a good meal for the Sisters whose catechetical work demanded their full days. The last decade of her life brought shadows, and she lost the vibrancy which had won for her many dear and affectionate friends; but she remained always the gentle, loving Sister so well and so devoutly remembered. May God grant her rest and peace in heaven, which He has prepared for those who love and serve Him faithfully and generously.
