When I was appointed principal of St Charles School in 1970 Sr Johanna was the assistant principal. Sister was excellent in all she did and she supported me completely. A true gem. i read Rob Erhart's comments and wept. He was an excellent boy. From 1970 - 1975 Sister was my faithful advisor. May she rest in peace. My love for St Charles is forever!

My heartfelt sympathy to the Ursuline community and the Leyland family on the passing of Sr. Johanna, and Sr, Joachim. I came to the community as a boarder in 1942 the same year as Sr. Johanna came as a postulant. We, the boarders always had a close affinity to the postulants and "white veils." Hopefully she will meet up in heaven with our son, John, who was killed in a car crash this past summer. our prayers for all. Jane (Schmitt) Rensch, class of '47.

Leyland Family : I am HONORED to say that SISTER M. JOHANNA was my NAMESAKE, she had taught my Mom, Patricia Lee. Mom went back and forth between the NAMES of the two SISTERS, JOHANNA and JOACHIM and decided on : JOANNA MARIE. I always LOVE to SHARE the STORY of my NAMESAKE with my CHILDREN. I see she was born in Pennsylvania, and I have been a STEELERS fan for many years.
