Sr Marjorie BS (79) of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Little Flower of Bethany of Mangalore Province passed away on Sunday 28th July 2019 at 9.45 pm. She is the member of Regina Caeli Convent, Ranipura, D.K District, Karnataka.

Sr Marjorie BS hails from Our Lady of Pompei Church, Gurpur Kinnikambla, of Mangalore Diocese and is the daughter of late Mr Trinidad Pinto and late Mrs Bridget Pinto. Three of her younger sisters, Sr Melvin, Sr Marie John and Sr Flavian are Bethany Sisters and late Fr Herbert Pinto was the member of OFM Cap.  

Sr Marjorie BS served as a teacher in three of our schools at Maryvale Convent Kinnigoli, Madeleine Convent Mulki and Santa Cruz Convent Kulshekar, in Mangalore Province.  After her retirement from teaching, she involved herself in Pastoral and Social Apostolate. She has been encountered by thousands of her students as a loving mother and teacher. She has radiated God’s love to students and people of the locality by giving them Christ and His values. She was active and full of life while teaching Catechism, attending SCC meetings, visiting families specially the sick and the poor. She tirelessly worked to rehabilitate the Alcoholic dependents of her locality thus built families of peace and joy.

The students of the Hostel found in her the traits of a loving mother. She cared for them with tender kindness and respect. She was found in front of the Blessed Sacrament and prayed unceasingly. Rosary never slipped from her hands in times of her illness. She is known for her simplicity of life and missionary zeal for souls.

She was suffering from Parkinson’s disease, high Blood Pressure and Diabetes. In the month of January 2019 she had a fall due to which she was unable to walk. She was treated at Fr Muller  hospital, Kankanady and later at Concetta Hospital Kinnigoli. She became seriously ill in the month of June 2019.  Later she recovered yet her health deteriorated drastically and she breathed her last on 28th July 2019 at 9.45 pm in the presence of her community sisters.
Her funeral rites will be held at Our Lady, the Queen of the Universe Church, Ranipura on 30th July 2019 at 4.00 pm. 

I express my sincere condolence to the members of Regina Caeli Convent, Ranipura community, and in a special manner to Sr Cicilia Mendonca and her team members.

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord,
Let perpetual light shine on her.
May her soul rest in peace

Sr M Lillis BS
Asst Superior General
