Sister Anne Frawley went to meet her Beloved on December 22, 2018.
Sister Anne was born December 14, 1940 in Gibbinstown, Kilmallock, Co. Limerick, Ireland to Johanna Hartigan Frawley and Patrick Frawley. She had seven siblings. She is survived by three brothers and two sisters. Two brothers, Joe and James preceded her in death.
She left her home and family at the age of 14 to become an aspirant with Sisters of the Presentation, Fargo. She completed her high school education in Shanely High School, Fargo. She was received into the Congregation in 1958 and was professed as a Sister of the Presentation on August 17, 1960.
She graduated from St. Louis University with a major in Chemistry and a Math minor in 1966. Subsequently she received an MA in Natural Science in 1974 from the University of Seattle and an MA in Catholic School Administration from Boston College in 1984.
She ministered in many schools: St. Anthony and Nativity Elementary Schools; Shanley High School and Cardinal Muench Seminary in the Fargo Area. St. Alphonsus and St. James in Langdon and New Rockford; Butte Central High, Butte MT. She traveled to Goshen, New York to minister in John S. Burke Catholic High School. She served as teacher, principal and superintendent of schools.
Within the Congregation she ministered as Chapter Delegate, Director of Novices and member of the Formation team.
She is remembered for her love of education. Her brilliance as a science teacher and her desire to remain in the classroom after retirement. She cherished her science books and has retained them to this day. She longed and hoped to return to teaching. Aging or being out of sync with modern students had no place in her heart. She adapted to the world technology before her peers.
Her generous, kind spirit was always available to accompany others on their journey. Like our Foundress, Nano Nagle, she spent herself in the service of others.
She is survived by her Presentation Sisters, Fargo and by the Sisters in the US Province; by her two brothers and two sisters; by her amazing students and circle of friends.
May she Rest in Peace!
