When Sr Anne Marie took her last breath on the evening of Our Lady’s birthday, September 8, we knew that we had lost someone special. The previous Provincial, Sr Juliana Alexander once described her as someone whom God had taken his time to knit together. Her goodness was rare and many people who were fortunate to have interacted with her can attest to this.
Sr Anne Marie was born on March 20, 1934 to Louis and Cecelia Rodriguez, the second of three children – Fr Neil Rodriguez CSSp her older brother and Sr Glenda Rodriguez OP her sister, both deceased. She attended St Teresa’s Intermediate School from the age of three until she began her secondary education at St Joseph’s Convent, Port of Spain.
