“I am very grateful to my Family and my Dominican Sisters for the love, support, and encouragement that has been shown me these 75 years as my ministries led me to many places and types of work.”

Jubilarian 2019 – 75 Years a Sister

I was born on February 13, 1926, to Charles P. Reynolds and Helen Tennis Reynolds. I am the oldest of three girls – myself, Mary, and Pat. Mary died some years ago. Our family belonged to St. Francis Parish in Grand Rapids where I attended school through the tenth grade. For high school, I went to Catholic Central and there my teachers were Dominican Sisters.

In 1944, after a time of discernment, I decided God was calling me to Religious Life; so having become familiar with the Dominicans in high school, I decided to become a Sister and am now celebrating my 75th Jubilee as a Grand Rapids Dominican.

After attending Aquinas College, I taught both elementary and high school in various Catholic Schools. I was Principal in one of the elementary schools.

For five years I did office work. It was very interesting. In this work, I experienced wholesome Spirituality from two Dominicans of our Community who were in charge at the time. Both were brilliant and exemplary examples of Christ in positive ways.

Many thanks to our Sisters for so much in so many kindly ways.
