“It may truly be said of good old Sister M. Lawrence Doyle that she worked out her salvation at Laurel Hill Academy, for during all the years of her religious life she had scarcely ever been outside its convent walls. She entered at Laurel Hill Academy, was a novice there in Mother Teresa’s time, and from that time until the day of her blessed death, July 27, 1912, she served our Lord in humility and simplicity. She was very fond of the children, and generations of boys and girls in Susquehanna hold in loving remembrance the “sweet thanks” of Sister Lawrence for the little services they gladly gave her.”
