Eleanor Hedwig Quaderer (Eleanor Frederick) aged 86, died September 3, 2021, at Elizabeth Seton Residence, Wellesley Hills, MA. The daughter of Eleanor M. (Langen) and Frederick E. Quaderer, Eleanor was born in Bellmore, NY on April 5, 1935. She entered the congregation at St. Joseph’s Convent, Halifax, NS, on October 8, 1957. Gentle, quiet and unobtrusive, Sister Eleanor’s first assignments were in Quebec, as a middle-school teacher.
Sister Maria gave so much throughout her years as a teacher, psychologist and companion to many people on their life’s journey. She was a woman of deep faith and lived out her life caring for the needs of others. She was very professional in her ministries and served others with great compassion, love and understanding. Sister Maria was a gifted writer and had a beautiful singing voice.
Loved and energized by the One who calls us, we hear the cries of those who suffer and trust the inspiration of the Spirit as we move forward together.
