PNCR MOURNS PASSING OF SISTER THERESA LA ROSE, M.S.--PRESS RELEASE Friday 18 September 2009




The People’s National Congress Reform has noted with sadness the passing of Sister Theresa La Rose, M.S., a member of the Mid-Atlantic Community of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas, on Saturday 12 September 2009. The Party, therefore, tenders its sincere condolences to the Mid-Atlantic Community of the Sisters of Mercy of the Americas and her relatives and close friends.

The Party recalls that Sister Theresa La Rose began her ministry in education, her first assignment being Sacred Heart School in Georgetown. She subsequently taught at Brickdam, Santa Rosa and Mabaruma. Sister La Rose’s last educational positions were at the Trust College where she taught prospective teachers and at St. Roses High School where she was a teacher and a pastoral minister.

But it was her dedicated commitment to the development of the interior regions of the country that will always be remembered. Sister La Rose worked for the Ministry of Interior Development, Amerindian Affairs and in various other educational capacities associated with the Government. She did make an impact on the lives of the members of the Amerindian Community and she was awarded the Medal of Service in 1975 by the then PNC Administration.

May her soul rest in peace!
