Hospital Sisters of the Third Order Regular of St. Francis

Sister M. Godeharda Potyka

✝ Saturday, August 6th 2016

"There I want to live, there I want to be.  To be there on the loving heart of Jesus."

From a Eucharistic song

  Sister M. Godeharda was born on March 4, 1925 in Ratibor, Upper Silesia. She entered our Congregation on January 27, 1951 and made her first profession of vows on October 28, 1951. She belonged to the Sisters who celebrated their 65th anniversary of first profession of vows this year.

 She was very conscientious in her work. Her behavior was marked by respect for the person and for the work of others. She was able to maintain aloof from matters for which she had no responsibility. In dealing with others, she was always polite, discreet and unobtrusive. Her desk was always neat and tidy. 

 On August 6, 2016 the Merciful Lord called her home. With an open and ready heart she went to meet her God. We believe that Sister M. Godeharda now sees the ONE in whom she placed all her hope in life. May she now rest in His peace. With gratitude we will remember her in prayer.
