Remembering Sister Verna Furiel, OSF

Furiel_Verna Jubilee 2007_webIn the early hours of December 26, 2009, Sister
Verna Furiel received the precious gift which her
heart had long desired. Holding fast to the hope
that she would “be celebrating Christmas in
heaven,” her Advent waiting came to an end and
her expectation was fulfilled with the vision of the
Eternal Christmas. Enduring the pain and suffering
of her final days with a sense of blessed assurance,
Sister Verna was an exemplar of confidence in the
presence of Emmanuel, God‐with‐Us. A Franciscan
through and through, her parting gift of love to all
those whom she treasured in life will be forever
wrapped in the peace and joy of Christmas.
