Birth: Mar. 26, 1900
Anderson
Anderson County
South Carolina, USA
Death: unknown

Madame Rose Lummis. She was a Catholic nun who had spent all her life working in missions and traveled to Anderson to open a school.

She stayed at The Chiquola for two months. On March 26, 1900, she died from pneumonia. Now she is buried in Anderson.On her gravestone are two hearts, one with a crown of thorns around it perhaps a symbol of her order. She was from Sodus Point, N.Y. It is said she would provide Christmas gifts to the children of that town each holiday season without regard to their background, religious belief or economic status, according to a book compiled by her traveling companion, Delia Gleeson, and Alan Firstone, a resident of Sodus Point.

In her life, Madame Lummis opened a school in Simcoe, Canada and one in Tryon, N.C. Then she traveled to Anderson with the same goal in mind.

But while in Tryon, she took a small loan from the school in Canada money that was actually her inheritance and used it as seed money for the school in Tryon.
