Obituary. On Saturday, Oct. 2nd, the death took place at Corner Brook of Rev. Sister Tarsicia, a member of the Order of the Presentation. The deceased was twenty-five years of age and was Catherine, daughter of Thomas and Annie Martin of Flatrock, St. John's East.
The late Sister entered the Order of the Presentation at St. John's in 1929 and made her religious profession in July 1932, coming to Corner Brook in September the same year. Up to the time of her death Sister Tarsicia was a valued member of the teaching staff of St. Henry's School. Taken ill only a week ago, Sister Tarsicia failed to rally, in spite of the efforts of Dr. Cochrane and his medical staff to save her. The last Sacraments were administered by Rev. J. Dwyer, C. SS. R. and her soul passed peacefully away late Saturday morning. At all Masses on Sunday Rev. Fr. Dwyer paid a tribute to the memory of the late Sister. He stressed appreciation for one who had sacrificed her life in God's service especially in the education of little children.
Sister Tarsicia taught the infant class in St. Henry's School for a number of years. She seemed especially equipped for this responsible task and won the trust and reverence of all. God beckoned her in the very midst of her duties but her memory will live long in Corner Brook. Fr. Dwyer also paid tribute to the care and kindness of Dr. Cochrane and his medical staff shown at all times, likewise he thanked all those who gladly offered assistance during the illness of Sister Tarsicia.
The funeral took place on Sunday afternoon at 3:30. A procession was formed at the Church under the direction of the Executive of the Knights of Columbus, and it was headed by a Cross-bearer and Acolytes, the baby-class of the deceased Sister walked beside the hearse, then followed the pall-bearers, the parents of the pupils she taught. Then came the Sisters of the Presentation Convent and Sisters of Mercy, Petries, and finally a long procession of school children and men. The burial took place in a special plot in Holy Redeemer cemetery, and the final prayers were recited by Rev. J. Dwyer, C. SS. R., with Rev. M. Brosnan of Petries and Rev. C. O'Hara, C. SS. R. assisting. The solemn funeral Mass was held on Monday morning at 9:00 o'clock at Holy Redeemer Church, Rev. J. Dwyer was celebrant of the Mass, Rev. M. Brosnan, Deacon, and Rev. G. Crowley, Sub-Deacon. The children's choir sang the Requiem Mass under the direction of Rev. C. O'Hara. During the Mass all the children received Holy Communion, as a spiritual token of gratitude for their beloved teacher. Members of the Presentation Order and Order of Mercy occupied seats near the Sanctuary. Much sympathy is felt for the bereaved parents and family and many visitors called at the Sacred Heart Convent to console the Nuns in the loss of their Sister in Religion. Many beautiful floral offerings together with numerous messages of sympathy were received.
