Sister Mary Angela
1850 - 1936
On October 23, 1936, Sister Mary Angela (Elizabeth Chalk) passed to her eternal reward at the House of Providence, Kingston.
From the beginning of her religious life a high sense of responsibility characterized her every action. Great exactitude in the performance of present duty was her manifest aim which continued through life.
Shortly after profession Sister was sent on one of the missions in Holyoke, Mass., where typhoid fever raged and here she distinguished herself by her untiring devotion to the poor and suffering, as well as by her generosity in supporting the trials incidental to a new foundation.
Recalled to the Mother House in 1890, she was elected to the General Council, a position which she held for two terms. Later she was appointed Mistress of Novices, and subsequently was Visiting Sister to the home of the sick and poor in the city.
In later years, though unable for active service, owing to rheumatism, she kept busy at light work, and in the intervals between, she was to be found occupied in prayer.
