  • Death*: She died on 19 April 2001 at Dubuque, Dubuque County, Iowa, USA, at age 89.2
  • Biography: Marion was the 4th child of seven children, in this family of 2 boys and 5 girls born to Margaret Madigan and Michael Woods. The Woods family lived in Presentation Parish in Chicago. At the time of her parents death. Mamie and Michael Madigan, the sister and brother of Margaret, raised the family of 7 children ranging in ages fram 18-2.

    In 1929 she entered the Sisters of Charity, BVM Congregation. At the reception Marion recieved the name "Maude", a name she could barely tolerate, and was delighted to return to her baptismal name Marion.

    She was a nun for 72 years. 45 of those years teaching elementary school.
    In Iowa she was missioned at St Martin, Cascade; Sacred Heart, Davenport; and St Patrick, Iowa City.

    In the Northwest, she taught at St Anthony, Tigard, Ore.

    Her Illinois missions were St Joseph, Rock Island and Blessed Sacrament, St Tarcissus, Holy Cross, St Agatha, and St Eugene all in Chicago. In her retirement she lived at St Eugene Convent until going to Marion Hall in 1999.

    "Those who lived and taught with her remember her as a kind, welcoming, encouraging, thoughtful and friendly person.
    She was an excellent teacher" She also is remembered for never missing a birthday with a card, even when her list of nieces, nephews, grandnieces,and grandnephews grew and grew. Not a Christmas went by, without a mass card from her.

    "One of her grandnephews comments "She brought such a wonderfully calming to the family". Her humor and gift of storytelling, the twinkle in her eyes and her ability to accept whatever circumstances she encountered created a quality of presence that will be indeed missed.

    You knew Marion would be the last to go in her family, making sure that all her siblings were taken care of, before she left this world. That's how she was, she was a great person, aunt, and nun.

    You are missed and so are your Mass cards......
