Death of Sister Teresina Zanello F.D.C.C.

Purified by a two-year crucifying illness, borne with exemplary patience, Sister Teresina Zanello slipped from a coma into God’s loving embrace on 29 January 1989, at Canossa Hospital.

She was 93 years of age and had spent 67 years in religious life, 62 of them in Hong Kong.

Teresina was born at Mortegliano-Udine, Italy, theatre of the First World War. Her family had stayed there-bound to their land-throughout the fire, and Mother Teresina would often recall the Christian and human gestures of her parents towards the soldiers moving to and from the battle-fields.

These events, together with a strict up bringing and a sturdy mountainous environment contributed to Teresina’s solid build, both physically and morally.

In 1921 she joined the Canossian Novitiate at Vimercatre, followed a few years later by her younger sister, Assunta, who has survived her in this very mission. Her preparation for the Missions continues at the then newly established House of Formation in Welwyn Garden City - U.K. On her arrival to Hong Kong, her main task was that of teaching in Primary Schools, whether at St. Francis’, Wanchai, or at Sacred’s, Hong Kong and Macau, supervising, in her turn, the boarders. During the war she also put to good use her knowledge of First Aid for the war victims. After the war she was asked to teach Religious Knowledge to the Catholic children of the Army School at the “Gun-Club”, a task which she carried on for a good twenty years, preparing groups of children for their First Communion.

At the same time, she was the welcoming and cordial doorkeeper at Caine Road, Canossian Convent. Many may remember her, ever ready for any request, ever concerned with the visitors’ needs, filling all her spare moments with prayer.
