Travelling from Vancouver, Sister Stephanie entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Toronto and pursued the teaching profession. She was a warm and gentle person who was much loved by her students.
Sister Stephanie taught in elementary schools in Ontario, Manitoba and British Columbia.
Preparing children for the Sacraments gave her great joy. Following her ministry as an elementary teacher, Sister Stephanie taught adults as an animator for the Andre Rochais program for Personality and Human Relation (PRH). She engaged in this ministry for twenty three years.
Sister Stephanie volunteered as a pastoral visitor until her health began to decline. She received loving care from our dedicated staff at our Sister's residence until God called her to eternal life.
