Sister Elizabeth Ann Brown is a native New Yorker who, prior to entering the congregation, worked in a bank in the City. She was a dedicated and lifelong educator, teaching in many Grey Nun schools, including Mother of Divine Providence School in King of Prussia, PA. It was here that she built close relationships with parents and children. She was known for her gentle and caring ways. She spent many years as a primary teacher and prepared hundreds of children for the reception of their First Communion. When asked about St. Mary’s School in Potsdam, NY, where she spent more than 25 years, her face lights up. Respected and loved by pupils, parents, teachers, she was named Teacher of the Year by the Diocese of Ogdensburg, NY. During her years in retirement, Sister Elizabeth Ann found many ways to serve her sisters, folding laundry, distributing mail and visiting. She now resides at St. Joseph’s Manor in Meadowbrook, PA, where she continues to reach out to many of the residents. She is beloved by the staff and especially the residents on her floor. It is there that she will celebrate her 70 years as a Grey Nun of the Sacred Heart.
We will be featuring all of our 2014 Jubilarians prior to the Congregational Jubilee celebration May 17 in Yardley, PA. Collectively these 15 women have served God and His People for 900 years! God Bless them and their families for the gift of their generous hearts and lives.
