Memo: Obituaries
Elizabeth ``Sister Mary Edna'' McLarney, 83, an educator who dedicated her life to Camden Catholic High School, died Thursday at Cooper Hospital-University Medical Center, Camden.
She was a resident of the Camden Catholic Convent in Cherry Hill.
Raised in Audubon, she was a student in the first class of St. Rose of Lima School in neighboring Haddon Heights, and graduated from Camden Catholic High School, then in Camden, in 1933.
An educator for the last 64 years, Sister Mary Edna returned to Camden Catholic High School, now in Cherry Hill, in 1965 as a Spanish teacher and then chaired the foreign language department. She retired from classroom teaching in the mid-1970s, becoming an assistant to the dean of students.
In 1984, she became the school's director of activities, a post she held until her death.
Camden Catholic High School will be closed Monday so that staff and students can attend her funeral service, said the Rev. Andrew Martin, the school's principal for the last 15 years.
``It has been a sad time here at Camden Catholic for the last few days, being aware of her illness and dying,'' Father Martin said. ``This was a grand, dignified lady who was so much a part of the building and who did everything with such class.''
Even though Sister Mary Edna had been retired from formal teaching for some time, she continued to work every day, often behind the scenes, Father Martin said. ``She was a principal's dream . . . an inspiration to the rest of the faculty. She was always content to do the little things that others wouldn't bother themselves with.''
From the little to the big, she was active everyday at the school. She did routine office work, helping with attendance and collecting tuition, and coordinating various activities, trips and mailings.
Sister Mary Edna also oversaw two of the school's big fund-raising events each year. She was in charge of the patron drive for the annual school play and of the annual magazine sale drive.
She also ran the National Honor Society annual induction of new members, and was responsible, years ago, for bringing the Spanish Honor Society to the school.
In 1995, she was honored as the year's distinguished alumnus.
``I don't think there was anything more important in her ministry than Camden Catholic and its students,'' Father Martin said.
Before returning to Camden Catholic, Sister Mary Edna had taught at Phillipsburg Catholic High School in Warren County; Red Bank Catholic High School in Monmouth County; Cathedral High School in Trenton; Holy Spirit High School in Atlantic City, and St. Mary School in Perth Amboy.
She graduated from Georgian Court College in Lakewood in 1949, and received her master's degree in Spanish from Notre Dame University in 1958.
She enjoyed traveling, including trips to Europe and Alaska.
She is survived by sisters Loretta Aigner, Lucy Mullin, Mary Kerley, Frances Miersch, Dorothy Rutter, and Agnes Beach Tome; brothers Edward and Joseph; and nephews and nieces.
Visitation and Vigil services will be from 6 to 9 p.m. tomorrow and from 9 to 9:45 a.m. Monday at St. Stephen's Roman Catholic Church, 6300 Browning Rd., Pennsauken, where Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Monday. Burial will be in Most Holy Redeemer Cemetery. South Plainfield, Middlesex County.
Memorial donations may be made to McAuley Hall, 1633 Route 22, Watchung, N.J. 07060.
