Sister Joan of Arc Rodrigues, SHF

Sister Joan of Arc Rodrigues, a member of the Sisters of the Holy Family, died on Oct. 20 at the age of 84 at the Motherhouse of the Sisters of the Holy Family in Fremont. She was born on Dec. 25, 1929 in Antioch.

Throughout Sister Joan of Arc's 56 years as a member of the Sisters of the Holy Family, she served as a religious education coordinator at many parishes in California, Nevada and Hawaii. In more recent years, Sister Joan of Arc became a pastoral associate and ministered for several years at St. Vincent's Medical Center in Los Angeles.

In 1996, Sister Joan of Arc was named the pastoral care director at the Motherhouse Care Center and remained in that position for several years until her retirement. Although retired, Sister Joan of Arc remained active in community ministry.

Before joining the Sisters, Sister Joan of Arc served in the Navy from 1951 to 1955, in Washington, D.C. and Treasure Island. Her military service qualified her for military honors at her burial, so an honor guard was present at the funeral.

A Mass of Christian Resurrection was celebrated at the Motherhouse Chapel on Oct. 27; burial was at Holy Cross Cemetery in Colma.

Memorials may be contributions to the Sisters of the Holy Family, P.O. Box 3248, Fremont, CA 94539.
