Sr Veronique

Today with deep sorrow and immense grief we mourn the sudden and untimely passing away of Sr Veronique. On Wednesday last week she was admitted to the Tamale Hospital where she was diagnosed to have typhoid, malaria 4+ and a touch of pneumonia. She passed away last night at 9.30. No one expected that it would end in the way it did. The sisters are devastated with the loss of one so young and dynamic. She was only 42.
She had just professed her Final vows last year in September. She belongs to the Congregation of the Missionary Sisters of our Lady of Africa. She was the headmistress of one of the schools here and was doing great work in the field of education. She was Spiritual Director to one of our novices.
At times it is hard to fathom the depths of God's mystery. We pray for her family and for her sisters in the community and Congregation. may her gentle soul rest in the loving and welcoming embrace of her God.
I am sure she will be greeted with the words .. well done good and faithful servant! for she worked long and hard, with dedication and commitment in one of the most trying of God's vineyards!
