Age 87

Sister Rosamond’s career as an educator spans 50 years, 24 of which were at Salve Regina University. After teaching at the elementary and middle school level in the Diocese of Providence, Rhode Island, for 17 years, she served as principal of St. Brendan School, then as chair of the department of humanities at St. Xavier Academy. From 1978 until 1983, Sister Rosamond was vice principal of St. Raphael Academy. While earning her doctorate degree in government, she joined the faculty of Salve Regina.

During her tenure at Salve Regina, Sister Rosamond served as a member of numerous professional organizations and developed a politics program that was known for being rigorous and challenging. She was a well-educated woman who educated others well.

After retiring from Salve Regina in 2007, Sister enjoyed a busy retirement. She continued to show her Mercy heritage by serving on the board of Mount St. Rita Health Centre and volunteering at the Warde-Robe, a ministry of the Sisters of Mercy, where she loved being with the people who came there.

Well done Sister Rosamond, good and faithful servant. Rest in peace.
