Obituary | Sister Doris (Ronald Marie) Probst, SSND

Sr. Probst
A funeral Mass for Sister Doris (Ronald Marie) Probst, SSND, was celebrated June 6 at the Theresa Center Chapel at Ripa in St. Louis. Sister Doris died June 2 at Anna House in Bridgeton. She was 87 and had been a School Sister of Notre Dame for nearly 65 years.

Born on April 6, 1931, in St. Louis, she entered the candidature at Ripa on Aug. 31, 1950. She was received into the novitiate on July 29, 1952, and given the name Ronald Marie in honor of her father. She professed first vows July 31, 1953, and final vows on July 31, 1959.

For 22 years, Sister Doris taught primary children. In the Archdiocese of St. Louis, she served at Immaculate Conception in West Alton and St. Barbara and St. Andrew in St. Louis. She also taught in Jefferson City and Robertson, Mo., Washington Park, Ill., New Orleans and San Antonio.

After her teaching career, she was the activity director at Villa Gesu in St. Louis for seven years then became a pastoral care worker as she ministered to the elderly at Holy Trinity in St. Louis for 11 years. In 1991, she needed a heart valve replacement and returned to Villa Gesu to recuperate. She then served on the staff working in the laundry and the occupational therapy department.

When Villa Gesu closed in 1999, she was missioned to live at Our Lady of Loretto. She volunteered at Village North Retirement Home for six years. Doris was also a eucharistic minister at Village North Retirement Home, Christian Hospital Northeast and Our Lady of Loretto. In 2005, Doris retired to Village North Retirement Home and worked with Sister Judith Jung to open a chapel, so Catholics could have Mass at the facility. In 2012, she was assigned to Veronica House and then to Anna House in 2014.

At the time of her diamond jubilee in 2013, Doris described the true blessing of being a SSND for 60 years, “All the people I have met through teaching and my other ministries have blessed me and brought God’s love to me.”
