    Subject: Sister Marie Aloysius

    Dear Jack,
    Thank you for your inquiry about your great aunt. She is referred to as Ann or Anna in some places. I will send you some information in the regular mail, but in addition, there are several more things that I can relay to you now. Sister grew up in Chicago and attended St. Andrew's Grade School, completed her high school here at St. Mary-of-the-Woods High School. She earned B.S. in Education from St. Mary-of-the-Woods College and attended Loyola University in Chicago. Her teaching assignments were quite varied. She taught in Washington, D.C., Fort Wayne, Richmond, Lafayette, Terre Haute, Indianapolis in Indiana; while she taught in Illinois at Norwood Park, Joliet, Chicago, and Palos Heights. She also was in Tulsa, OK and Chelsea, MA. Several places she was Superior which also meant she was the Principal of the school.
    On another paper in her folder, it listed her father's occupation as grocer. She named her paternal grandparents as Joseph Sullivan and Anna McGivney from County Cork, Ireland; her maternal grandparents as Dennis McCarthy from County Cork and Ann McA----- from County Wexford. She did not have the full name of her grandmother.
    I do remember Sister. I did not teach with her but saw her when we all came home to the Woods in the summer.
    I hope this information is helpful to you.
    Sincerely,
    Sister Marie Grace Molloy, SP

    Funeral of Mr. Bernard Sullivan, Cavan
    The funeral of Mr. Bernard Sullivan, Cavan, whose death occurred on the 13th January, took place from the Cathedral, Cavan, to Killygarry on Sunday, 15th inst., and was one of the largest that passed through the town for many years.
    Rev. Dr. Comey, Adm., in a touching panegyric, said the death of Mr. Sullivan was a heavy cross for his children, and a heavier cross for the wife that he loved so well, and who so well deserved his love. The very large congregation showed how widespread was the sympathy with Mrs. Sullivan and her family in their bereavement, and that would in some measure help to assuage their grief. Deceased was a straight-forward; scrupulously honest and honourable man, in who there was no guile. Helped by his devoted wife he had built up a prosperous business, and while it sometimes happened that worldly Prosperity lessened piety, that was not so with Bernard Sullivan, who remained the steadfast, God-fearing Catholic he had been from his earliest years. He came to Holy Mass in the mornings, especially during the months of May and October, for he had a great devotion to the Mother of God. He was a frequent visitor to the Blessed Sacrament in the evenings when he made the Way of the Cross, and when the end came he was well prepared to meet his Creator without fear, which would always remain for his sorrowing wife a source of great consolation. The congregation then joined in prayers for the eternal repose of the soul of the deceased.
    The chief mourners were: -- Mrs. Sullivan (wife), Tom, Jack and Bennie (sons), Maisie, Rita and Kitty (daughters), Mattie and Jim Sullivan (brothers), Mrs. Donnelly and Mrs. Sullivan (sisters), Mrs. M'Connon (aunt), P. Reilly and J. Donnelly (brothers-in-law), T. Sullivan (nephew), P. Ruddon, M. M'Cabe (uncles), J. Sullivan, J. M'Evoy, P. Nulty, M. Sullivan, John M'Evoy, J. Reilly, C. Reilly, M. Wilson, Harry and Joe Reilly, Gowna; Mrs. O'Reilly, do; Mrs. Murray, do; Mrs. Paul MacShane, Mrs. Taggart, Mrs. Brady, Cavan House; E. Brady, do; Mrs. Soden, P. Leddy, H. Leddy, M. M'Connon (relatives); L. Reilly, Mrs. Cullivan, Mrs. Briordy (cousins).
    The clergy present or represented were: Right Rev Monsignor Brady, P. P., Crosserlough; [many more priests are listed as are the hundreds of general public present. Also who sent wreaths and who sent letters of sympathy].
