Sister Corona Wyse 100th Birthday
I am pleased to rise today to recognize Sister Corona Wyse, a constituent who turned one hundred years old on July 15, 2017.
Sister Corona was born in 1917 in Placentia and was a teacher from 1936 to 1960. She taught in Grand Falls-Windsor and Corner Brook, and served as director of religious education with the St. John's and Stephenville Roman Catholic School Boards.
Sister Corona has earned several degrees including a bachelor’s degree, two master’s degrees, and a PhD in Education.
Sister Corona is also a published author. She wrote a book called Not Words, But Deeds on the life of Nano Nagle, Foundress of the Presentation Sisters in Ireland. The book is a history of the Presentation Sisters before and after their arrival in Newfoundland in 1833.
Sister Corona now lives at the Presentation Convent Motherhouse in St. John’s.
I ask all honourable members to join me in congratulating Sister Corona Wyse on her many achievements and the occasion of her one hundredth birthday.
