Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis

Sister M. Dietfriede Isermann

✝ Saturday, September 26th 2020


The Lord is my shepherd; there is nothing I shall want.
Fresh and green are the pastures where he gives me repose.
Near restful waters he leads me. Psalm 23, 1-2

Today at the early hours of the new day, on September 26, 2020, the Lord God called, our dear Sister M. Dietfriede Isermann, home into His glory.

Sister M. Dietfriede was born on February 10, 1935 in Schöppingen and joined our Congregation on April 07, 1961. She made her first profession on October 28, 1963.

God the Lord gave our dear Sister M. Dietfriede a full life in HIS service. In faith and trust, she lived her way of discipleship in Franciscan simplicity, piety and deep attachment to God. 

Sister M. Dietfriede lived in the convent in Lingen, in the convent of the St. Rochus - Hospital and later in the convent Maria - Hilf. She served  as a sacristan in the church at St. Rochus Hospital. Reliable and always taking good care, she took over many tasks. Sister M. Dietfriede loved the garden and the nature.

In September 2019, Sister M. Dietfriede moved to the St. Heriburg-House in Münster. Her health condition decreased more and more during the last weeks. Consciously she prepared herself for the coming of her Lord and she was ready and willing when HE called her by her name this morning at 6:05 a.m.

In love and gratitude, we take leave of our Sister M. Dietfriede.  We remember her in prayer and are confident that her life has been completed in God.

Due to the current situation, the Eucharistic celebration will take place on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at 2:00 p.m., only in the inner circle, in the chapel of St. Rochus-Hospital, Telgte: followed by the burial in Sisters' Cemetery in Telgte.
