The death has taken place of Sr. Mary Marietta, R.S.M., (Patricia Ryan) in Rockhampton, Australia, on Friday 23rd of October 2015, in the loving care of her sisters in religion at the Mercy Mater Hospital after a short illness. Her sister Muriel and brother Philip and his wife, Catherine, were with her during her final illness.
The backup given to the family in Australia, by the Mercy Sisters was second to none. A very special message of thanks is due to Sr. Mary Moynihan, who tirelessly looked after the family and was always at hand with her car.
Sr. Marietta was laid to rest on Tuesday 27th of October 2105. She is predeceased by her brothers Adrian and Leo and her sister, Marie.
“Our dear friend Sr Marietta was farewelled yesterday with a Mass to celebrate her life. Sr Marietta was very supportive of the cultural activities here at the College and she regularly attended our music evenings and cultural events. May her gentle soul rest in peace.” – from the Cathedral College Rockhampton newsletter
