May 4, 1933 – May 24, 2022
Sister Madeline Marie, known as Miki to her family, entered into eternal life on May 24, 2022 in Tsu, Japan. She was born in Kyoto, Japan on May 4, 1933 and entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet novitiate in the fall of 1961. She was educated at Notre Dame College in Kyoto, Japan and received her master’s degree from Sophia University in Tokyo.
Madeline’s early years in ministry were spent teaching junior high and high school English at St. Joseph Joshi Gakuen in Tsu, Japan. She shared her gifts generously as Principal of St. Joseph Joshi Gakuen for many years and as the leader of our vice province in Japan. In addition to being a natural leader, Madeline was a woman of strong faith, integrity and commitment to education.
Now, reunited with family and friends, may she rest in God’s loving peace.
