Sister Maria Assunta Vernocchi F.D.C.C.

Mother Maria Assunta Vernocchi of the Canossian Daughters of Charity was called to her everlasting reward on the 7 August 1978 at the age of 83. She had spent sixty-two years in the religious life of which fifty-eight in the mission.

She arrived in Hong Kong from Italy on 25 March 1920 and for twenty years was teacher of religion and needlework with the extra duty of being in charge of the convent chapel.

She was a very prayerful soul and precise in her work. Being kind and gentle in her manners as well, she soon endeared herself to the community and to the many girls she cared for.

Poor health was no obstacle to this brave missionary, so pious and prudent.

In 1941 she was nominated superior of the then founding home and at the end of her term of office was assigned to other convents in Hong Kong.

In 1945 she was nominated superior of Scared Heart Convent in Macao.

In 1958 she was called back to Hong Kong for a period of rest.

In 1959 she found herself once more in the foundling home, now known as Ling Yuet Sin, helping generously where she could. When her health deteriorated further she had to resign herself to give up even the little she could do and in November last year she was welcomed into the Provincial Infirmary where she passed away peacefully in the first hour of 7 August.

May her memory be an encouragement to those who have known and loved her!
8 September 1978
