Sister Barbara was my 4th grade teacher at St Anne School in Houston, Tx. We shared a March 17 birthday along with my mother and Sister Martha - St Patrick’s Day birthday quadruplets! Both came to my house for my party and it is a favorite memory. I and two close friends, Elizabeth Flanagan and Yvette Arguelo still talk about it.

May she be forever in peace.
