Sister Teresa CSF – Rest in Peace

Teresa portraitSister Teresa, (Nan Foster), was born on 27 December 1928 and died on 16 December 2013. She made her Profession in CSF on 3 April 1967. Over the years Teresa served the Community in a variety of roles, in different parts of the world. She was CSF’s Minister General from 1996 – 2002.

Teresa died Albion Court Care Centre in Birmingham where she had been resident since the spring of 2012. She had been living with Alzheimer’s disease for some years, and had become increasingly frail.

Last Friday we were told that she she was not expected to recover from her most recent chest infection. We are grateful to the staff at Albion Court for their excellent care of Teresa, whom they clearly held in great affection. Sr Jannafer was with Teresa when she died just after 8am, and other sisters and friends had also been with her at various points over the weekend.

The funeral will be in Birmingham in the New Year and arrangements will be made known in due course. May she rest in peace and rise in glory.
