Founding member of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary turns 90

(Still River, Massachusetts) On November 1, Sister Anne Mary Cobb celebrated her 90th birthday. Customarily in community only the feastday of the patronal Saint is celebrated for each religious, but at ninety it seemed appropriate to mark the day with a celebration.

At lunch, the Sisters from St. Elizabeth’s House and Saint Ann’s House joined for a party in Sister Anne Mary’s honor.

Sister is one of the founding members of the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the first member to attend Father Feeney’s lectures at the Center in Cambridge.

A native of Clinton, Mass, sister had an illustrious career before she entered religious life, traveled throughout Europe before the war. Sister joined the Center in 1949 and has been a faithful member of the Community for sixty-one years.

A woman still to be admired, Sister impressed everyone with her wit and Irish elegance which has not diminished. Reciting one of her many poems at the celebration, the event ended with song and laughter and gratitude to God for such a beautiful example of perseverance.
