“I have loved you
with an everlasting love;
I have loved you and you are mine. ” -Jer.31:3
Sister Vera Glynn was born in Summerfield, Kansas; she entered religious life at Mount St. Scholastica, Atchison, Kansas, and pronounced her vows August 15, 1934. Sister Vera was a charter member of Benet Hill Monastery. She celebrated 60 years of vowed life, August 14, 1994.
Sister Vera served fifty years as a teacher and administrator in schools located in Kansas, Missouri, Iowa, California, Colorado and Mexico.
Sister Vera daily celebrated life to the fullest, radiating joy to those she met. She was one of our great prayers, often asking St. Benedict and St. Therese to intercede with God. Sister enjoyed crafts, cross-word puzzles, card-playing and baking apple pies. As an avid reader she often informed her companions of the ‘news’. Her Irish wit and hearty chuckle endeared her to all.
Sister Vera dearly loved her family and her religious community. May we remember Sister Vera with loving prayer and gratitude.
