Sister Maurita Reynolds, OP

I am very grateful for the many kindly experiences of my home, my years in school (Grades K – 12) and in our Grand Rapids Dominican Community. All displayed great love of God, Neighbor and Self.

I was born on February 13, 1926. My parents are Charles P. Reynolds and Helen Reynolds. I have two sisters, Mary and Pat. I appreciate both of them as well as my parents. Mary died eight years ago.

My first experience as a teacher was in a Religious Education Program for public school students. This was during my senior year at Catholic Central High School.

My later teaching experience began in 1946 in various Catholic Schools. I taught in both elementary and high school. In two of the high schools I was in charge of two social studies departments. I was principal in one of the Elementary Schools.

For five years I was in Office Work. It was very interesting. In this work, I experienced wholesome Spirituality from two Dominicans of our Community who were in charge at that 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.
