OBITUARY | Sister Carol Donohue, CPPS

Sr. Donohue
A funeral Mass for Sister Carol Donohue, CPPS, was celebrated Jan. 7 at St. Joseph Chapel in O’Fallon. Sister Carol died Dec. 31. She was 80 years old.

Caroline Mundy Donohue was born on Aug. 1, 1941, in St. Louis, the older of two children of Thomas and Julia (Miller) Donohue. After graduating from Ursuline Academy, she studied at Southeast Missouri State University before beginning to teach at St. Clement School, where she met the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood.

Sister Carol entered the Sisters of the Most Precious Blood’s novitiate in 1964 and received the name Terrance, her brother’s formal name. She professed first vows on Aug. 10, 1966. She earned a bachelor’s degree in special education from Fontbonne College (now University) and a master’s degree in learning disabilities from Peabody College (now Vanderbilt University) in Nashville, Tennessee. Sister Carol taught elementary students at St. Mary in Glasgow and at St. Monica and St. Nicholas in St. Louis. She also taught at DeAndreis High School in St. Louis.

Love for the poor and passion for justice led Sister Carol to Cass Catholic Worker House in St. Louis, where she ministered for 10 years. Recognizing that direct service must be accompanied by efforts to address the root causes of poverty, she became involved with the establishment of Community Land Trust of St. Louis, a nonprofit housing corporation that developed affordable rental housing.

In 1990, Sister Carol began 26 years of service in Bolivia. There, she worked with Amanecer, serving primarily with the programs for unhoused children. She was a fierce advocate on their behalf.

She is survived by her brother, Terry.
