Archival Remembrance:

Sister M. Victoria is the sole survivor of a large family which gave five of its children to serve God in religion. Two of her sisters, Sister M. Margaret and Sister M. Alacoque, were outstanding teachers in our Congregation; another sister, when she was sixty-five years old, entered the Visitandne Order in Wilmington, DE; her brother was Reverend Richard Kearney, T.O.R., of Altoona. Sister M. Victoria’s pupils remember her as a kind, patient teacher. The last year’s of her life were spent in longing memory of her loved ones already in God’s good care, as she awaited her reunion with all who had preceded her in death. May her soul rest in peace.
