Saratoga, Ca.
Sister Helen O'Sullivan, SNJM (Sister Mary Margaret of the Sacred Heart) entered into eternal life on January 4, 2018. She was 90 years old and a professed Sister of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary for 70 years.
Sister Helen was in elementary schools for all 46 years of her ministry in education. In schools she served as music teacher, girls coach, classroom teacher and principal. She taught at Marylrose (Oakland), Saint Gregory (Los Angeles), Saint Mary (Los Angeles), All Souls (Alhambra), Saint Augustine (Oakland), Saint Cecilia (San Francisco), Saint Monica (Santa Monica), Ramona Convent (Alhambra), Saint Anastasia (Los Angeles), Saint Andrew (Pasadena), Saint Anthony (San Gabriel) and Saint Gerard Majella (Los Angeles). For over 23 years Helen ministered at Villa Maria del Mar in Santa Cruz with her gracious hospitality.
Sister Helen loved her family and was a faithful friend. She is survived by nephews, nieces, grand-nieces, grand-nephews.
She was a woman of the arts; she sought and created beauty through music, flower arranging and in the gardens created and lovingly tended at Villa Maria del Mar. We remember the twinkle in her eye, her quick quip, her love of travel and love of British dramas on PBS, perhaps from her background in theater and drama.
