Mary Richard, SNJM

Sister Mary (Marian Arthur) is one of the “pioneer” residents of the Holy Names Sisters’ continuing care retirement community, Mary’s Woods at Marylhurst. She was among the intrepid band of Sisters living at the Convent of the Holy Names who evacuated the space for the construction of Mary’s Woods and then returned two years later to help create a thriving resident community of Sisters and lay people. In her early years as a Holy Names Sister, she was a primary teacher in SNJM schools in Oregon, including 10 years in Medford.
