“I believe that love is the strongest force in the world and classrooms must be loaded with it,” wrote Sister Janet Mish after many years as teacher and principal of parish elementary schools in Michigan. That love included a belief in the possibilities of children and their teachers as well as a profound delight in her charges whatever their ages.

Sister Janet had the ability to relate well with children and adults, both in her professional life and her life in community. She had a wry sense of humor and loved relating anecdotes about her nephews as well as former students who delighted her with their comments on life.

Toward the end of her ministry Sister Janet wrote, “Most of my Dominican life has been rich in joy and blessings. I have been given much by my community; and I hope I have been equally generous in giving to my community.”
