Sister Jeanne Marie Prince, OP




After six decades of active ministry in the field of Catholic education, Sister Jeanne Marie retired to St. Catherine’s Convent in Caldwell in 2005 and died there peacefully on February 8, 2015. A graduate of Caldwell College in 1953, Sister Jeanne Marie went on to Seton Hall University for her Master’s in Education and Certification in School Administration

Known to be an excellent teacher, Sister Jeanne was equally competent and beloved as a school principal. She served as principal of Ascension School in New Milford from 1975 to 2002. In her active retirement years, Sister continued to teach accelerated math at St. Michael’s School, Union until 2005.

An avid and creative knitter, Sister shared her skills generously. Her prayerful presence and quiet humor are already missed.
