Mourning the death of Sr Josephine Robecke OP

Sr Josephine Robecke OP

On Wednesday, 26 June 2019, Sr Josephine Robecke died unexpectedly in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. She felt so much better on the morning after she received a stent and was discharged from hospital. She had not felt so well in a long time and looked forward to a few more years of good health. That was not to be, as the Lord had other plans for her and called her to her heavenly reward on the evening of Wednesday 26 June.

Sr Josephine left for South Africa shortly after her first profession in 1961 with other sisters and, as a trained tailor, helped many women, especially refugee women, earn a living by sewing, knitting, crocheting and embroidering.
