Not sure what to say?

I am blessed to have been lucky enough to know Sister Arthur, she was a great teacher, and a great person who let her brilliant smile and happiness wash over those around her.

This world is not as bright without her. She will be missed by all those lives she touched and made better. She was a farmer, as...

Sister Arthur was principal at St Colman's while our boys were there. She had such a warm heart and love for the children(and we moms and dads)! I have so many wonderful memories of volunteering at the school. She always had a warm smile and a hug even on the toughest days. Sister was a strong advocate for the school and the children even when her funding was slashed and she had to create miracles out of dust. We will be saying a special prayer for a very special lady.

Sister Arthur had a huge heart and truly cared for her children. She was my principal at St Colman. I am sincerely grateful to have known such a beautiful person. May she rest peacefully.

ETERNAL REST IN PEACE MY DEAR YOU SERVE THE LORD WITH ALL YOUR HEART. SO PROUD TO CALL YOU COUSIN LOVE FOREVER, VINCENZA LUCARELLI SPINELLI

so sad to hear this, Sister Arthur was an amazing science teacher to me at St. Colman's in 6th and 7th grade back in the 70's. She helped to encourage me to be a vet. XOXO Rest in peace.

Deepest sympathy to the Tipping Family. Sister Arthur had a way of making everyone feel better, children and adults alike. It truly was a blessing to have known her.
