LeBoeuf, Emily Rose  
ERIE - Emilie Rose LeBoeuf, SSJ, 78, of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Northwestern Pennsylvania, died on Monday (Nov. 17, 2014) in the 62nd year of her religious life. Sister Emilie Rose was born in Bradford on Sept. 14, 1936, the daughter of the late Archie and Betty Gates LeBoeuf. She entered the Sisters of St. Joseph from her home parish, St. Bernard of Clairvaux in Bradford, in 1953 and professed her final vows on Aug. 15, 1959. She celebrated 60 years of religious life in 2013. She felt the call to her vocation at a very early age, when she made her First Communion. She said that her call was nourished by the dedication and spirituality of teachers at St. Bernard in Bradford, particularly Sisters Consuela, Rose Agnes, Mary Pascal, Marcella and Virginia Ann. It was, as she said, how they lived the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph that drew her to her vocation, and she credited the sacrifices and loving support of her parents that enabled her to answer the call to religious life. Sr. Emilie Rose graduated from St. Bernard High School and Elementary School in Bradford. She earned a bachelor of science degree in elementary education from Villa Maria College in Erie in 1964, and a master's degree in theatre arts in 1979 from Villanova University in Villanova. She worked as a teacher for nearly 50 years, 43 of which were spent teaching in the Erie Diocese at the following schools: St. Andrew in Erie; St. Agatha in Meadville; Holy Rosary in Erie; St. Patrick in Erie; Our Lady's Christian in Erie; St. Mary's in Reynoldsville; Kennedy Catholic High School in Hermitage; St. Ann in Erie, where she also served as principal; St. Leo Elementary in Ridgway; Elk County Catholic High School in St. Marys; Bradford Christian High School in Bradford; Villa Maria Elementary in Erie; and Venango Catholic High School in Oil City. Sister Emilie Rose also participated in the SSJ/Marycrest Prayer Card ministry praying for patients at Saint Vincent Hospital. She was a receptionist/volunteer with the Oil City Housing Authority and she ministered with the Adult Education/Resource Center with Career Link of Oil City. She received recognition for participation in a Congressional Leadership Conference and attended numerous seminars on a variety of topics. She was nominated four times to Who's Who Among American Teachers. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Dorothy, and her brother-in-law, Daniel. She is survived by her nephew, Mark Taylor, and many friends. She is also survived by her family, the Sisters of St. Joseph. Friends may call at the Sisters of St. Joseph Community Living Center, 5031 West Ridge Road, Erie, on Thursday from 2 to 4 p.m., when a Mass of Christian Burial will be held. Private interment will be at Trinity Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Community Support Fund of the Sisters of St. Joseph, 5031 West Ridge Road, Erie, PA 16506-1249.
