Sister Gregory NADDY RSHM Obituary
December 31, 1917 - December 29, 2016 A Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary for 79 years, Sister Gregory Naddy died on Thursday, January 29, 2016 at Regina Residence in Orange at the age of 98. Born in Kilmanaham, Co. Kilkenny, Ireland, she was educated by the RSHM Sisters in Ferrybank, Ireland, and made her Novitiate in Tarrytown, New York. After her First Profession in 1937 she taught in New York before coming to California in 1941. She received a BA from Marymount College, Tarrytown, NY and an MA in Education from UCLA. In California, she taught at Corvallis HS, Studio City, Marymount HS, Westwood where she also served as Principal, and she spent thirty nine years teaching and in administration at Marymount College in Westwood and Palos Verdes. She served there as Academic Dean, Registrar and Dean of Admissions. She was a special Assistant and Advisor to each President. Sister Gregory was a legend in the Palos Verdes area where she lived for almost 40 years. Over the years she received many honors as a memorable educator. In 1999 she moved to SHM Convent in Montebello and assisted Cantwell Sacred Heart of Mary HS students. She then joined the Casa Guadalupe Community in 2001 and in 2008 moved to Regina Residence in Orange. A Dodgers fan all her life, she knew each player by name. As her eyesight diminished she relied upon the radio for the coverage of each game. Many RSHM and CSJ Sisters read her the daily news, especially the sports section. Vin Scully called to wish her a happy 75th Anniversary of her Profession as a Sister and as an avid Dodgers fan. There was no World Series for the Dodgers this year, but she was hopeful for next year! Sister Gregory was one of three children and was predeceased by her parents, Mary and Peter Naddy, her brother and sister. She is survived by her very loving nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. She will be greatly missed by her entire family, her RSHM Sisters and her many friends. Her Funeral Mass will be held on Friday, January 6, 2017, at Sacred Heart of Mary Chapel, 441 North Garfield Avenue, Montebello 90640, at 10:00 AM followed by a reception. Burial will take place at Holy Cross Cemetery, Culver City at approximately 1:30 PM. May she rest in peace.
