Sr. M. Michaeli McMeekin
Catherine Spellacy McMeekin, known to us as Sr. Michaeli, entered in Clonmel on October 7th 1956. She hailed from Airdrie in Scotland and was a true Scotswoman to the end!
St. Benedict’s Rule reads:
“At the gate of the monastery let there be placed a wise old ‘woman’ who understands how to give and receive a message, and whose years will keep ‘her’ from leaving ‘her’ post.”
This seems a very apt quote for Sr. Michaeli who is still remembered for her warm hospitality in her roles as porter or receptionist. She also worked in the Sewing Room and Cafeteria IMTH in Drogheda.
Unfortunately, MMM lost this sister gifted in hospitality in the same traffic accident that claimed the life of Sr. M. Francesca – a tragic end to a quiet Sunday afternoon drive.
Sr. Michaeli is buried in Drogheda.
