    I just saw a picture of the oldest Sister of Providence in the latest HOPE magazine. Her name is Sister Rosalie Marie Weller. Did she ever teach at Saint Anthony of Padua in Los Angeles? If so, I was in her 1st grade class and am now 58 years old!! I loved her! She made a huge impact in my spirituality even as a 1st grader!

    Hello Tina,

    Sister Rosalie Marie Weller spent most of her years of ministry as a cook in Indiana and Illinois. She served as a cook at Providence in Chicago from 1956-58. So it must have been a different sister. Thanks for your comment. I’ll ask around and see if another sister remembers a sister with a similar name who may have taught at St. Anthony of Padua in the 1950s.

      Thanks Amy! I’m disappointed Sister Rosalie is not my first grade teacher, but happy and grateful for the memory of my dear teacher! 🙂 I was in 1st grade in 1961-62, so thanks for checking on that. Later, I attended Marywood High School in Orange, but I always see pictures of Sisters who had taught there.
