Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis
The Lord is my light and my salvation.
The Lord is my life’s refuge.
Trusting in God's merciful love, our loving Sister Jonata died on April 5, 2020 in St. Francis Hospital in Münster.
Sister M. Jonata Puls was born on June 7, 1931 in Riesenbeck, Steinfurt district. She joined our Congregation on August 13, 1954. She made her first profession on May 3, 1957.
Sister M. Jonata worked in Tilbeck Foundation from autumn 1957 to July 1992 after passing her nursing exam. In 1978 she completed additional training in the Episcopal education and nursing home at Haus Hall and received recognition as a health education assistant. In the Tilbeck Foundation, she worked lovingly and tirelessly for the disabled people entrusted to her. She paid particular attention to the severely disabled residents. She maintained good contacts with their relatives.
In July 1992, Sister M. Jonata was asked to look after our sick and dependent sisters in St. Josefshaus in Lüdinghausen-Seppenrade together with other sisters. She was happy to provide this service.
Sister M. Jonata moved to the St. Heriburg House in Münster in November 2014. In recent years, she has been increasingly dependent on help and care and gratefully accepted it. The apostolate of prayer was very important to her. She gladly took the concerns of the congregation, her relatives, the Church and the world entrusted to her into her personal prayer. For herself, she remained humble, calm and satisfied. According to her calling, she faithfully followed her path of faith.
Sister M. Jonata was admitted to St. Francis Hospital a week ago. Unfortunately, her health did not improve. On Palm Sunday, April 5, 2020, she was called by God shortly before midnight at around 11:30 p.m.
We now know Sister M. Jonata is in God's love and peace. That gives us comfort. Thank God for her life as we say goodbye to her. We ask God to reward her for all the goodness. We especially remember her in prayer and in the celebration of the Eucharist.
