April 20, 1933 – May 25, 2022
Sister Mary Rose Boito entered into eternal life on May 25, 2022 in Los Angeles. She was born in San Francisco on April 20, 1933 into an Italian family. She was proud of her Italian heritage and of being a San Franciscan. After graduating from Star of the Sea Academy in 1951, she entered the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet in Los Angeles.
For almost 50 years, Sister Mary Rose was involved in education, teaching and administration. Her ministry benefit from her warm, gracious presence. She knew her sports and she loved them. She loved following the San Francisco 49ers, San Francisco Giants and Golden State Warriors.
Sister Mary Rose was a prayerful woman. She was solid and strong in her labors and in her steadfast love of our community and of a generous God. Her day began with coffee and quiet prayer. Her pleasant, joyful presence and unflagging sense of humor brought hope and courage to many. Her quiet sparkling presence will leave a void in many hearts.

May she rest in peace.
