Sister Helen Ann Stuart, 89

stuart sisterOWENSBORO, KY - Sister Helen Ann Stuart, 89, an Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph, died Sunday, April 15, at Mount Saint Joseph, in her 63rd year of religious life.

A native of Saint Raphael in Daviess County, she was the daughter of the late Joseph and Minnie Stuart. After health problems prevented her from joining the convent, she credited devotion to Our Lady of Fatima with a miracle when she was given a second chance to enter religious life in 1949. She went on to be a devoted educator for 34 years.

Sister Helen Ann taught at Precious Blood School, Owensboro, 1961-62, and St. Alphonsus School, St. Joseph, 1966-76, as well as other schools across Kentucky. She served in the Brescia College curriculum library in 1983. From 1985-2002, she ministered as the switchboard operator for the Ursuline Motherhouse. She retired in 2002, and was devoted to the Powerhouse of Prayer.

Survivors include a sister, Martine Greenwell of Albuquerque, N.M., her sister-in-law Agnes Stuart of Owensboro, nieces, nephews, cousins and the members of her religious community.

The funeral Mass will be at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, at Mount Saint Joseph, where visitation will begin Wednesday at 4 p.m., with a wake service following at 6:30 p.m.

Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory, Owensboro, is in charge of arrangements.

Gifts in memory of Sister Helen Ann may take the form of donations to the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, 8001 Cummings Road, Maple Mount, KY 42356.
