BY MOUNT SAINT JOSEPH STAFF
On Jan. 27, Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph Marie Montgomery, OSU, celebrated her 100th birthday with a party in the Rainbow Room at Saint Joseph Villa, Maple Mount. Many Ursuline Sisters and some employees and family members joined in the festivities, as well as Bishop William F. Medley, who had come to the Mount to celebrate Mass for the feast day of St. Angela Merici, the foundress of the Ursuline Sisters.
Sr. Marie is the oldest sister in the community, and has been an Ursuline for 79 years. She was a teacher for most of those years, with a few years in Kentucky and Missouri, but mostly in her beloved New Mexico for 40 years.
