Archival Reflection:

Our Sister Inez Farrell came from a fine Catholic family which nurtured four splendid vocations to the Church. Two of her sisters entered the Second Order of Dominicans at Corpus Christi Monastery in New York, and the other entered our IHM Congregation. One of these cloistered nuns was a member of the group which founded Corpus Christi Monastery in Menlo Park, California. After her long and fruitful years as teacher, Sister Inez spent the last years in the shadowing twilight of the weakness of old age.
