My aunt, Sister Mary Beata, was my mother's oldest sister. Born Clarisse Katherine Mackie in Worcester, Massachusetts, to florist Charles Dickerson Mackie and Mary Ellen Quinn. The family moved when she was age 16 to Pittsfield, MA. About 1923 she entered the Catholic religious order for missionary women named Maryknoll in the early days of its founding.

Sr. Beata was assigned as a teacher in her missionary locations of Hawaii and the Philippines. For the four years of World War II she was interred by the Japanese in a prison camp called Los Banos. The more than 2,000 civilians in Los Banos were rescued by the local Filipinos and the US forces on February 23, 1945.

Sr. Beata was a sweet and charming, humble and intelligent lady. A true saint.
