Mary Frances Rebel Obituary
January 24, 1925 - February 27, 2017 Rebel, Sister Mary Frances, C.S.J., age 92, (formerly Sister Albert Mary), passed away on Monday, February 27, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA. Born January 24, 1925 in Hollywood, California, a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet since March 1944. Sister Mary Frances spent most of her ministry years in Hospital Administration and Addiction Recovery Programs. She had a unique passion for excellence in health care. Sister reflected: "I believe working with recovering men and women who were struggling with their addictions was what I loved the most. Witnessing people returning to God or finding God for the first time was a deeply spiritual experience for me." Sister was honest, caring, and kind; she was also a marvelous, most incredible, and elegant woman. She is survived by her niece Michele Hardy, nephew Richard Vademais, and great-niece Jessie Blackman. May she rest now in peace, finally united with her beloved twin sister Norma. A Service of Remembrance will be held at St. Joseph's Chapel, Carondelet Center in Los Angeles on Monday, March 20, 2017 at 4:30pm with Funeral Liturgy at 6:30pm. Interment will be held at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at 10am.
