Sister Mary Annfrancis Demming, SND: 1926–2019

Our dear Sister Mary Annfrancis went home to God very peacefully on Friday, October 25, at 10:15 a.m. Sr. Angela M. Salazar was with her, playing a Mary song on the harp. Sister was known for her keen wit, welcoming spirit and kindness toward all. Whether writing lesson plans, balancing the books, writing thank you notes, or sorting the “stuff” which held treasured memories, she was meticulous and conscientious. We are grateful for her life of prayer and service especially to her sisters in community.

The wake will be on Wednesday, October 30, from 2–4 and 7–8:30, with a prayer service at 7:00, and on Thursday from 9–9:45. The Mass of Christian Burial will be on Thursday at 10:00 followed by the burial and dinner.

May Sister Mary Annfrancis delight in the presence of our loving God.

    Sister Mary Annfrancis was my 5th grade teacher at St. Cyril & Methodius church/school in Lorain, Ohio. I will always remember her for the kindness and caring that she gave all of us in her class. In 1958 she was responsible for two classes(5th and 6th) in one room at the school. I look back at this now and I am amazed that she was able to do this. She was a very good teacher on multiple subjects for both grades. She was able to put up with my sometime bad behavior, but I always knew she loved us all no matter what we did.
    I was able to keep up with her over the years with Christmas cards and letters and she was able to visit Michele and me when she was in Middleburg, Va. We were able to have a few visits over the years in Chardon, Ohio and I always looked forward to seeing her. She was truly a blessing for me in all those years and I will miss her. God bless you Sister Annfrancis!
