Obituary for Sister Marie Therese Terrazzino

Sister Marie Therese Terrazzino, O.S.M., also known as Sister David, was called home to the Lord on January 17, 2018 at Mother of Sorrows Convent in Blue Island, IL, after complications due to pneumonia. She was born on June 17, 1926 in Chicago, IL. Sister Marie Therese was a member of the Mantellate Sisters Servants of Mary for 62 years. She entered the convent on March 6, 1955 in Blue Island and made her final profession on September 22, 1962.

Sister Marie Therese gave her heart to God and the Church through teaching and catechetical ministries. She taught at the Cathedral of St. Raymond Nonnatus School, Joliet, Mother of Sorrows Boarding School, Blue Island, Seven Holy Founders, Calumet Park, and St. Bridget’s, Hobart, IN. She did catechetical ministry at St. Mary Immaculate Parish, Plainfield and with the migrant farm workers in Plainfield. After retiring from teaching, Sister shared in the various ministries of the Community, particularly in the “Rosary” office. She was a receptionist in the office and she also helped to craft rosaries and memorial items from roses. This ministry is a part of the Community’s bereavement ministry.

Sister Marie Therese will be greatly missed by the Mantellate Sisters Servants of Mary and by her family: her sister, Carmella Basso and her many nieces, nephews, cousins, the many friends and students she taught, the Secular Servite members, and especially the “Holy Rollers” who assist the Sisters in their bereavement ministry. She was preceded in death by her parents, Salvatore and Teresa (nee Buscemi) Terrazzino; her sisters, Flroence Cacciato, Catherine Terrazzino and brothers, Joseph, Vincent and Salvatore Terrazzino.

For those who would like to leave a lasting tribute to Sister Marie Therese’s life, memorial donations to the Mantellate Sisters Servants of Mary would be greatly appreciated in lieu of flowers.

Visitation will be Sunday, January 21, 3:00 until 8:00 PM at the Overman-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, corner of Routes 30 & 59, Plainfield. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by the Most Reverend William Patrick Callahan, Bishop of La Crosse, on Monday, January 22, 11:00 AM at St. Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, 15629 S. Route 59, Plainfield. Interment will follow at St. Mary Immaculate Cemetery.
