Remembering Sister Rose Adrian Peukert, CSJ

 Los Angeles Province

Rose Adrian Peukert, CSJ

August 6, 1930 – January 8, 2023

Sister Rose Adrian Peukert died on January 8, 2023 at St. John’s Medical Center in Santa Monica, California. She was born Roselyn Agnes in Los Angeles on August 6, 1930. Her family eventually moved to a farm in Oxnard.

After graduating from Santa Clara High School in Oxnard and Mount Saint Mary’s University (then College) in Los Angeles, Rose entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet community in 1951. Her ministries throughout her life were mainly in education and administration.

Sister Rose was a prayerful support and a good listener. She had the ability to capture the spirit of a person, a sunrise, the ocean and natural beauty in words. She was a poet at heart and shared her gift generously. Sister Rose was an avid reader and participated in book clubs and kept up correspondence with students, family and many friends. She was a meticulous bookkeeper and always kept a balanced budget. She prayed regularly for rain, care of our children and the protection of Earth.

Sister Rose was an integral part of community life, and her presence is missed. May she rest in peace.

About us

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet are a congregation of Catholic sisters. We, and those who share our charism and mission, are motivated in all things by our profound love of God and our dear neighbors. We seek to build communities and bridge divides between people. Since our first sisters gathered in 1650, our members have been called to “do all things of which women are capable.” The first sisters of our congregation arrived in St. Louis, Missouri in 1836, and we now have additional locations in St. Paul, Albany, Los Angeles, Hawaii, Japan and Peru. Today, we commit to respond boldly to injustice and dare to be prophetic.
