In Memoriam: Sister Mary Coreen Jungbluth, SND 1919–2012

Our dear Sister Mary Coreen was welcomed into her new home and new life at 12:10 p.m. Wednesday, May 23. Sister was always “good to go” to meet her beloved Jesus.  Her happy disposition, her ever present smile and her great love for family and children were an inspiration to all she met each day. We rejoice with her as she knows the Sacred Heart of Jesus face to face!

    When Sister Mary Coreen was in the Assisted Living and I was Coordinator in our Healthcare at the same time, she was a cheer leader when any new activity was undertaken and a very positive thinking person, so hope-filled. I will never forget her great love for God and all of His creation and her constant smile and encouragement. We will dearly miss her presence among us.

    Music was one of Sister Mary Coreen’s ways of communicating. Once, many years ago, I had the pleasure of sitting next to Sister Coreen on a bus trip. During the trip we talked but more importantly she began to sing some songs that made the trip go more enjoyably and quickly. My prayer is that we all can sing our way into heaven as she did. Pray for us Coreen!

    My grandmother (Sister Coreen’s aunt) always talked about Sister Coreen. I never dreamed I would be so blessed to be able to work with her at Julie Billiart School. Sister Coreen loved her students and always brought out the best in each one. After she retired she told me she spent an hour before the Blessed Sacrament every day. She truly has been a great inspiration. Rest in peace, Sister!

    In 1953 , I and another novice were sent to St. Francis Parish on Superior Avenue to be taught by Sister Mary Coreen on how to teach first grade children. Thus, my teaching career began! Besides having her own second grade classroom and plus having the responsiblity of taking care of St. Francis Church along with Sister Mary Lawrene, she would spend the evenings, after prayers and dinner, preparing us for the next day. She was always happy, positive, and cheerful while showing us how to decorate our rooms, how to make flashcards and reading charts and each night she would teach us the next lesson in phonics, math and reading. She taught us how to teach art by actually making the project with us the night before so that we knew exactly how to teach the chldren. Sister Mary Coreen had a beautiful heart, always giving, sharing and loving. We were so blessed to have her as our mentor.

    I was a nurses aide at Notre Dame healthcare and Sr. Coreen always greeted me with a huge smile and a great big Hello. I loved her attitude and her love of Jesus. She is and will be missed.
