October 13, 2004

Sister Theodosia Reynolds, a longtime member of the Franciscan Sisters of Philadelphia, died of complications from a stroke Oct. 6 at St. Joseph Medical Center, where she had been a pharmacy worker and sacristan. She was 80.

Born Moira Helen Reynolds in County Leitrim, Ireland, she entered the order in 1949 and taught at St. Katherine of Siena School in East Baltimore and St. Peter Claver in West Baltimore. For another year, she was a housekeeper at Mount St. Mary's Seminary in Emmitsburg.

In 1956, she began working at the former St. Joseph Hospital, when it was on Caroline Street. She remained with the hospital for 48 years.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered yesterday at St. Joseph Medical Center.

She is survived by five sisters, Julia McTernan of Milford, Pa., and Annie Reynolds, Teresa Gilfenan, Bridget Doyle and Patricia Hoey, all of Ireland.
