Not sure what to say?

I smile when I think of Doris. I have memories of seeing her when we would visit Aunt Judith and Uncle Owen. I was a young nursing student and she was an inspiration. Later, she would bring comfort to my mother and to those of who cared for her as she died of cancer. Doris would send cards and prayers. Probably the thing that I will remember the most is the scapular she sent my mother. She put it on the day it arrived, wore it every day from then on and in fact we buried her with that...

Dear McDonald and Olsen Family,
We are so sorry to hear of your loss. She must have been quite a wonderful and inspiring person. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sister Francis Anthony always put a smile on my face. I like others loved the sticker and dollar filled cards that came on birthdays and holidays, but what I remember most is her smile and dimples. I am not sure how to even begin to give back as much as Sister did, but I know that because of her I will always think of everyone as a "winner", just like she did! Love to Joan, Mike & Joan and the rest of her family! Sister has truly earned her wings and is now joyfully using them.

How joyful it is to know that you are kissing the face of God. I am so happy for you, my precious, loving, Aunt Doris. I carry you in my heart.

I worked with Sister Francis for about 8 years at Hazelwood before she retired and still kept in touch with her for several years after that. Sister Francis was one of the sweetest person I ever knew and will be greatly missed. The staff on her floor enjoyed working with her and they learned from her and that was why her work area was always the best area and when vistors came for a tour that was the floor that they came to even if Sister Francis wasn't there they knew her staff was still...

Hello...I worked at Hazelwood in the 70s and I remember Sister Francis vividly. So
sorry to hear of her passing, and I offer my condolences to all her family and friends.

Sister Francis Anthony looked after me when, as a child, I was hospitalized at St Mary and Elizabeth Hospital. I will never forget her kindness. Her visits and support meant more to me than anyone can know. I will never forget her. God bless.

My Aunt Doris was a true inspiration in all she did and accomplished in her lifetime, and will continue to be an inspiration for me. I remember receiving a sticker-adorned birthday card with a dollar bill in it every year from her, and those cards were always the most meaningful gifts. I still have all of them, small testaments to the caring, loving, devoted soul that, though departed from her physical body, lives on through the memories she instilled in all of us.

I am so sorry to read of the death of Sister Francis Anthony-a truly Religious
May she rest in peacemy prayers are for her and the community
