Death of Mother Angelina Mandelli F.D.C.C.
Mother Angelina Mandelli, of the Canossian Daughters of Charity was called by God to her everlasting reward on 21 July 1977. Of her long full life of 82 years, 63 were spent in the direct service of God as a Religious. Joyously following her missionary vocation in 1920 she left Italy for the far-off mission field of Hankow (Hupeh) where she spent her youthful years teaching the little children, bestowing on all around her a childlike simplicity, a cheerful availability and a heartfelt goodness. Her virtues did not pass unobserved.
After ten years in mission land she was called back to Italy for the more responsible task of Mistress of Novices, in which post she remained for many years, giving the best of herself for the religious formation of the many missionary novices, who, spreading all over the continents carried in their mind and in their heart her sound teaching.
At the end of this task Mother Angelina enriched her religious experience by sharing the lives of various communities in Europe and in China, bringing wherever she went the joy of her innocent smile, a joy that told of her total donation to God, a joy that never left her even when a year before her death, she completely lost her power of speech. Then her teaching became more eloquent in her serene and cheerful acceptance of everything.
From where she now finds herself in her eternal reward may
she still smile lovingly on all who have known and loved her.
5 August 1977
