Rest in Peace, Sister Ethel

Message from the Missionvale Care Center


Dear, dear friends,

It is with profound sadness that we confirm the passing of our incredible Sister Ethel.

She slipped away peacefully in the early morning hours of August 16 and in the presence of her two beloved sisters, Geraldine and Maire who have been by her side since her return home to Ireland a month ago.

This immense loss is felt so deeply by thousands of you around the world.

Our hearts ache with yours.

Our heartfelt and eternal gratitude goes to her family and the Little Company of Mary for sharing her with us for so many years.

We will carry on and honour her wishes of continued compassionate care for the poor and the vulnerable. We commit ourselves to being what we love most about our dear Sister Ethel who has now gone, but has not gone far.

We take comfort, and pray you do as well, in the sacred belief that our relationships are not severed at death, that grief is love persevering, and that as we lift our eyes above the illusion of death, we will begin to see the eternity of life.

In this knowing, we pray that the love she gave so selflessly in her lifetime, is now infinitely multiplied. We faithfully trust she is forever embraced with this divine love and peace as she is welcomed into paradise.

Rest softly our precious little lady. We love you.

Kind regards,

Linda van Oudheusden
