Mourning the death of Sr. Melanie-Marie Green-Thompson OP

Sr. Melanie-Marie Green-Thompson OP

“I have called you by your name,
you are mine.”

Isaiah 43:1

Sr. Melanie-Marie Green-Thompson OP died on April 6, 2021 at the age of 80. She was born on 1 March 1941, at Ixopo in the Diocese of Mariannhill. Her family had a special link with the Oakford Dominican Sisters.

She became a postulant in 1967, a Novice in 1968, made first profession in 1970 and her final profession in 1973. She left her mark and touched people’s lives wherever she went. She made deep friendships everywhere. Family and friends were a definite priority for her and communication was most important.

We firmly believe that she is now where all God’s loved ones deserve to be, enjoying the vision and the union of the God she so generously served in his people - Being welcomed into the Kingdom and enjoying the comfort of God’s embrace. We know that she will intercede for our Congregation, for her family, friends and for all those whose lives she was privileged to touch. May she rest in the presence of our merciful God.
