Mother Ambrosia Cousin, Lady Abbess of Saint Cecilia's Benedictine Abbey, Ryde, Isle of Wight, died on Monday, 6 FEB 1953, after a short illness. She was 83. Mother Ambrosia entered the Benedictine Convent at Nimes, France, but with the passing of anticlerical laws in 1904 she went into exile and was received by the Benedictine nuns at Liege, Belgium. She came to this country in 1908 as mistress of novices at the Benedictine Priory, Ventnor, and in 1916 was elected prioress. The community moved to Ryde in 1922 and in 1926 she was raised to the dignity of Abbess by the Pope.

Requiescat in pace!
