Sr. Miriam Xavier Mug, 1913-2015

Our beloved teacher Sr. Miriam Xavier Mug passed away peacefully on March 31, 2015. The wake on Monday, April 6 was on a beautiful spring day when the bulbs were peeking out of the ground at the Maryknoll Sisters Center. The prayer service and remembrances of Sister by her Maryknoll family, her former students and those we took care of her, were touching and humorous, and reflected the love that we all had for a remarkable woman. The funeral Mass on April 7 took place on a dreary, drizzly morning but that did not deter a group of about 18 Maryknollers who came from as far away as Vancouver, Calgary and Philadelphia, and as close as New York City, to pay tribute to Sr. Miriam Xavier. We saw many of our former teachers and other Maryknoll Sisters whom we have gotten to know over the years.
