Sr. Alfreda Roehring- Mother Superior
I found this article but the name is slightly different?
I’m not sure if they are referring to Mother Superior Alfreda Roehring or another sister named Sister M. Alfreda? If you can clear this up for me that would be helpful. I deduct from the photo below that Sister Alfreda Roehring is her correct name, does the newspaper just have her name wrong? John Miller wrote me that he attended her viewing and she lived to 103 not 93.
Sister M. Alfreda, 93, of the Missionary Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, St. Michael’s Convent, Hyde Park, Berks County, died Thursday in St. Joseph Hospital, Reading.
Before retiring to the convent in 1972, she worked at the former Sacred Heart Home for Children, Coopersburg, for 22 years. Before that she was stationed in Columbus and Dayton, Ohio, and Malvern, Chester County, for 18 years.
Sister Alfreda entered the convent in Germany in 1921.
Born in Germany, she was a daughter of the late Bernhard and Johanna (Woltering) Roehring.
