Sr. Marie (Margaret) Griffin
October 27, 1892 – May 10, 1985
A native of Waterford, Ireland, Sr. Marie Griffin entered the Novitiate in Belgium in 1916 with the intention of serving with the Canadian mission but when the United States foundation opened, she was among the first volunteers to minister in Ozone Park. After serving for 13 years as the principal of Our Lady of Grace, Sr. Marie joined the Canadian mission and then spent her retirement at Our Lady of Victory. At the time of her death at the age of 92 Sr. Marie was the oldest Sister in the Ursuline Congregation in the United States.
We remember Sr. Marie with gratitude and love.
