Mary Rose Boito, CSJ

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.

Memorial donations can be made the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, Los Angeles Province.

May she rest in peace.

    I do realize that Sr. Mary Rose passed away last May. She and I taught together at Saint Lawrence Martyr school in Redondo Beach California during the 70s. And she kept in touch with me at least monthly for a very long time!
    I was hoping that there was someone who still had a prayer card from her funeral, or may be a mass pamphlet from that day. The sister with whom she lived in Torrance was named sister Agnes but I cannot remember her last name. Perhaps someone has her contact information. She was the one who called me to let me know that sister Mary Rose had passed away. Any help that any one can send me with regard to sister Mary Rose and/or her family would be appreciated. I did hear that she had a sister of her own from San Francisco who came down to be with her in the last stages of her life. sister was a wonderful friend whose absence I will feel for the rest of my life. I loved her dearly. Hopefully someone will see this and get me or be able to get me more information or tell me where I can send a sympathy card to her natal family. Thank you so much, sincerely, Cecelia de Mattos
