OLIVER_Mary Irene Rose (Sister Mary Monica, RNDM) passed away quietly at Santa Maria Home on Monday, June 21, 2004. Born in Sutherland, SK November 24, 1920, Irene was predeceased by her parents Joseph Louis and Virginia (Mongrain) Olivier, her brothers Louis (Jeanne) and Frederick (Wynn) and her sister Theresa (Louis) Beltjens. She is survived by several nieces and nephews and by her Sisters in the Congregation of Our Lady of the Missions. Irene joined the congregation in 1937 after graduating from Sacred Heart Academy in Regina. She subsequently taught in Saskatchewan at St. Andrew's, near Wapella and St. Joseph's in Regina, St. Michael's in Brandon, Manitoba, and the Catholic Schools in Fort Frances, Ontario. Finally in 1968 her missionary dreams were fulfilled and she went to Peru, where she devoted herself to the work of evangelization in each of the three missions of Ilo, Moquegua and Candarave. Everywhere Irene proved herself a diligent and skilful teacher. Her musical and artistic talents were of great use in both classroom and pastoral work, her lovely voice was effective both in leading choirs and in delivering reflections for lay services in the many missions in which she served. (Fifteen in the parish of Candarave). Her kindness was unlimited and her gentle ways smoothed paths for many people. In 1985 ill health forced Sister to return to Canada where she lived and worked in various communities in Regina and then in Fort Frances. The year 1998 saw the community from Fort Frances move to Regina where Irene settled in the Sister's Residence at Santa Maria. In just two years' time Sister's need for nursing care took her "upstairs " at Santa Maria and there she received the loving care of a devoted staff to whom the Sisters and Irene's family are most grateful. We will all miss her welcoming smile and greeting of "Hola! " A Funeral Mass will be celebrated on Wednesday, June 23, 2004 at 10:00 a.m. in the chapel of Santa Maria Senior Citizens Home, 4215 Regina Avenue with Rev. Ken Koep and Rev. Adam Sebastian, OFM, concelebrating. Interment in Riverside Memorial Park. In lieu of flowers, friends so desiring may make contributions to the missionary works of the Sisters of Our Lady of the Missions, 800 Adele Avenue, Winnipeg, MB R3E 0K6. Arrangements in care of Speers Funeral Chapel and Crematorium Services. Condolences to the family may be e-mailed to Cette adresse e-mail est protégée contre les robots spammeurs.
