Auntie Vi you will be sorely missed.

No one could have lived a fuller life and had fun along the way. So sorry we didn't get to meet in more recent times but you have been in my thoughts many times.

I have so many happy (and funny) memories.

You're on your final journey, the important one and you are guaranteed a safe landing.

Love and miss you.

Geraldine (Edith's daughter) xxxx

I knew Sr Theresa as my Auntie Vi. For such a little woman she had a huge impact on so many of us. I remember her as being full of life and energy. I think Vi got great pleasure from being in company with people of all ages and always spoke fondly of her students.

Rest in Peace.

Aunti Vi,
The world is a much sadder place without you - but the home team has another angel. Love you with all my heart - my memories of you are as full of life and laughter as you were. I will miss you.

Your niece, Collette

I was saddened to read of Sister Teresa's passing, yet not surprised to see that she lived a long, vigorus and productive life. My sister and I knew Sister Teresa just one year at the Marymount International School in Barcelona, Spain. I remember her well for her energy and humor. She was our chief guide on a school trip to Ireland at Easter (1965) and she made it so memorable! What a lady!
