It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of Sister Mary Evelyn, SSJD, early this morning,
23 August, 2018.
Sister Mary Evelyn had a long association with the School, having been a Gym and Games teacher at St
John’s D.S.G. from 1948 – 1950. After leaving the School, she Professed on 18 October, 1958. Her
involvement with the School continued, with her becoming a Board Member in 1975 and serving in this
capacity for over 40 years.
Sister Mary Evelyn’s passion for and loyalty to St John’s D.S.G. was unwavering and she thoroughly enjoyed
her visits to the school and interaction with the girls, young and old.
We extend our heartfelt sympathy to her family and friends and, in particular, to Sister Hilary, SSJD. She will
be sorely missed by the St John’s Community.
