Mother Maria Hyndman, Canossian Sister, died on Monday, 19 June 1961, aged 90, having spent 65 years as a Canossian Sister.

Mother Maria was born in Macao, of an English father and a Portuguese mother, and was educated in the College of St. Clara, then run by the Canossian Sisters. At the age of 25 she became a Canossian Sister in Macao. Three of her sisters also joined the congregation, and one of them, Mother Livia, is still working in Timor.

After eight years as a Sister in Macao, Mother Maria went to Timor to teach Portuguese and stayed there seven years. In 1910 she returned to Macao but almost immediately, on account of the outbreak of the Portuguese Revolution, was sent to Hangkow where she worked in the Canossian hospital for 17 years. In 1927 she returned to Macao and worked there till 1952, when failing sight brought to a close an active career that had included almost every type of work known to her congregation. Her last years were spent in the Delegation House in Hong Kong, where in tranquility and union with God she prepared for death and for eternity.
