Rosemarie Kasper, SNJM

For 40 years, Sister Rosemarie (Mary Agneda) was a classroom teacher in SNJM elementary schools in Oregon and Washington, the latter years as an art teacher. Her final and most beloved active ministry was as archivist for the former SNJM Oregon Province. During this time, she helped found the Archivists for Congregations of Women Religious and was instrumental in the creation and design of the Holy Names Heritage Center at Marylhurst. Sister Rosemarie is proud of her Northwest Coast Native American heritage. She actively participated in the local Kateri Circle and attended the canonization in Rome of the first Native American, St. Kateri Tekakwitha. Sister Rosemarie now resides at Mary’s Woods.
