For God has done marvelous deeds, break into song, sing praise!
Indeed, God has blest me in so many ways. I truly have much for which to be thankful – family, friends, community, all who have helped me break into song.
I was born on June 29, 1936 to Francis and Evangeline Ferguson in Alpena, Michigan. I am the second oldest and only girl of five siblings.
I was taught by the Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids throughout my elementary and high school years. It was during my junior year that I felt the call to religious life. After much prayer, I entered Marywood in 1953. Our class was one of the first to stay at Marywood and study at Aquinas, where I majored in Music Education.
In 1957 I was assigned to my first mission – Holy Family, Saginaw. Other places where I have served were Bay City, Traverse City, Muskegon and Grand Rapids.
Upon retiring from teaching I had a sabbatical year – part of which was spent at Springbank, South Carolina. After that I was involved in the WORD Project. At present, I work part-time in the Dominican Center Bookstore and play for Mass and prayers.
I am grateful to all who have walked this journey with me.
Time flies when you are having fun. For these years in community, I have had my share of fun. More importantly, they have been years filled with wonder, paryer, family, friends, ministry, and the opportunity to be associated with so many remarkable women.
