Sister Mary Doretta Knipper, SSND

The following brief paragraph appeared in the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle on Tuesday, July 30, 1895:
"John Knipper, of No. 334 Jay street, and his son, Peter Knipper, of Greece, will leave this morning for Baltimore, to be present at the exercises Wednesday morning, when his daughter, Miss Mary Knipper, will receive the veil of the Notre Dame order."
Thus was quietly announced the beginning of a long and fruitful religious life.

At its conclusion the School Sisters of Notre Dame wrote this tribute:
"At the age of twelve she received her First Holy Communion and from that time on began to think about her life work—her vocation. She had always been very much attached to the Sisters and felt happiest when with them. Sister's entire teaching career was dedicated to the service of little boys in the lower grades. That in itself is a eulogy in miniature, for it is a tribute to her patience and self-sacrificing zeal, her devotion to duty and the love of her vocation as a religious teacher."

Sr. M. Doretta died at 6:30 a.m. on January 22, 1938 at Baltimore's Mercy Hospital. Her Funeral Mass was celebrated two days later in the Notch Cliff Chapel.
