Sr. de Sales, Presentation Convent

Sr. de Sales, Presentation Convent, passed away peacefully surrounded by family and community last Monday evening.  Sr. de Sales, a native of Portmagee, Kerry spent all of her life in Presentation Convent, Clonmel, except for seven years spent in the Presentation Foundation in America.  De Sales came as a boarder to Clonmel, entered the Convent, and remained there all her life.  Aged 93, De Sales enjoyed good health up to about 12 months ago.  An  inveterate Kerry supporter, she was deeply proud of her Kingdom roots.  A great teacher, she is remembered with affection by all her pupils.  She had a great way with people and could identify children of today with their parents and grandparents.  Possessed of a caring, friendly, outgoing personality, that always saw the positive, she will be missed.  De Sales left an indelible mark on all who came in contact with her.  She was a true visionary, educator and religious person, who understood and lived out the ethos and philosophy of Nano Nagle.  May she rest in peace. †
