God called Sister M. Euphemia just when she was doing her best work in school. She was conscious of the reality of her serious condition; but even to the day of her death, she hoped for recovery. Sister was a gentle, self-effacing nun. Her pleasant, happy disposition endeared her to her Sisters and her students alike. In death, she is sincerely mourned.
