July 13, 2002

Sister Mary Felicitas, who taught in parochial schools for many years, died Monday of respiratory failure at Assisi House, her order's motherhouse in Aston, Pa. She was 97.

Born Mary Tyrrell in Philadelphia, she graduated from Hallahan High School and entered the Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia in 1923. She earned a degree from Mount St. Mary's College in Emmitsburg.

She taught at St. Elizabeth of Hungary in the Patterson Park section of East Baltimore from 1926 to 1943. She subsequently was stationed at half a dozen schools in and around Baltimore: St. Paul School, Catholic High School, St. Katharine of Siena, Towson Catholic High School, St. Stephen School and Our Lady of Mount Carmel in Essex.

She also had teaching posts in Allentown and York, Pa., and Wilmington, Del.

A Mass was offered Thursday.

She is survived by nieces and nephews.
