Sister Jean Therese Thompson, OP





Sister Jean Therese was a warm and gentle presence throughout her life. Born in New York and raised in Jersey City, she entered the Caldwell Dominicans in 1944. Sister received her B.A. in Social Studies and Elementary Education from Caldwell College.  She dedicated her entire active ministry to the work of Catholic elementary education where her prayerful kindness was a powerful influence on the young children in her care.

Sister retired to St. Catherine Health Care Center in 1976 and, after a long illness, died there peacefully on May 19.
