The Daughters of Charity

Of  Emmitsburg, Maryland

“I  was at OLV  only from '62 to '64.  I loved it there !!!  I was very sad to be one of the last two Daughters of Charity and charged with closing the school.   Sr. Mary Taneyhill ( deceased ) and I were the last ones.  Sr. Mary had been there twenty-two years and I only two but we both shed the same amount of tears on leaving….“
