Mother Giuseppina Grimoldi F.D.C.C.
(1896-1993)
R.I.P.

Born at Nova, Milan, on 27 April 1896, Mother Giuseppina Joined the Canossian Sisters on 11 February 1919, at Pavia although by then the Missionary Novitiate had been opened at Vimercate. Two and a half years later she was professed and by 1923 she had arrived in Chengchow, South Honam, where the Canossians had been operating since 1892.

From the beginning she was involved in hospital work. She was given the opportunity to learn the language and then being intelligent and keen, she had the good fortune to work side by side with and eye specialist who trained her on the job. Mother Giuseppina spent most of her life in this work both curing eye diseases and attracting people to the faith. People remember her as a serious, determined person who could combine a dignified presence with a motherly attitude.

During the final year of the war, from April 1944 to 1945, she was in Shensi at the concentration camp dispensary at Kiayu and then she returned to Chengchow working in the Eye Clinic and in the Laboratory. Patients, who heard of her skill, queued up and waited for hours for her ministration.

Forced to leave China in 1952, Mother Giuseppina went to Hong Kong to work in the hospital at Ling Yuet Sin, remaining there until 1958 when she was elected Superior of the Coloane Convent in Macao. Times were hard, the area was primitive and conditions were trying but courage and cheerfulness abounded in the Superior after her hard training in Mainland China.

After six years in Coloane Mother Giuseppina was transferred to another Macao Community, Casa Beneficientia, also as Superior, where she remained till 1969. That year she made her first and only visit back to her family in Italy. The visit was a short one from 5 May to 7 June. Returning to Hong Kong, She was transferred to Holy Family Community as 1st Assistant. The community was young and the changes of Vatican II were beginning to make themselves felt. But Mother Giuseppina did her best to adapt and to accept.

In 1975 she returned again to the Ling Yuet Sin Community for a short time and then in 1979, at the age of 83, she began a new apostolate of suffering and solitude. For eleven years she was a member of the Community in the Provincial House Infirmary.

The last three years though forced to keep to her bed, Mother Giuseppian was always alert. On Sunday 28 November she began to fail for the last time. Then on 1 December 1993 at about 11am she fell asleep in the Lord in a most peaceful manner.
