On Monday, September 14, 2009, Sister Regina Marie Anson slipped peacefully into eternity at 3:00 in the afternoon. The Lord called her to her eternal reward after Sister’s health declined during her last years at Our Lady of Angels.
Born on November 25, 1921, Sister Regina Marie was given the name Ione Marie by her loving parents William R. Anson and Regina (Hennessy)
Anson. She was baptized at St. Raymond Church on December 4, 1921. Ione was the oldest of three siblings: her brother, Father William Anson, CSV (now deceased) and twin sisters Marilyn Taylor (deceased) and Marjorie Ann Nelson who still resides in Joliet.
