Sister Mary Ann Bilingual coordinator

October 24, 1990

A Mass of Christian burial for Sister Mary Ann Justiz, O.S.P., a retired school-community coordinator for a bilingual student program in the Washington public schools, will be offered at 7:30 today in the chapel of Our Lady of Mount Providence convent, 701 Gun Road, Arbutus.

Sister Mary Ann, who was 67, died Thursday at the infirmary at the convent, the motherhouse of the Oblate Sisters of Providence. She had been ill with a brain tumor.

She retired three years ago from the Washington job, in which she worked with Spanish-speaking students and their families.

In that post for about 15 years, she also had served for the past seven years as local superior of the convent and as a parish worker at Holy Comforter Church in Washington. She taught in the school there from 1968 until 1971.

She also taught at St. Peter Claver School in Ridge in 1966 and 1967 and at schools in St. Louis; Mobile, Ala.; Mound Bayou, Miss.; and Charleston, S.C.

The former Aracelis Justiz was a native of Santiago de Cuba, Cuba, and earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Havana before coming to Baltimore and joining the Oblate Sisters of Providence in 1958.

She is survived by a sister, Dulce Maria Justiz of Santiago de Cuba; four brothers, Carlos, Rigoberto, Miguel and Manuel Justiz, all of Santiago de Cuba; and many nieces and nephews.
