Sr. Cesira Pierotti, FMA, age 97, died peacefully July 7, 2016 at the Salesian Sisters Provincial House in San Antonio, TX. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ubaldo and Rita Micheli Pierotti and her sister Alfea Paoletti and husband. Sr. Cesira is survived by a younger brother, Reno Pierotti and his wife. She is also survived by numerous nieces, nephews, a grand niece, cousins and her religious community, the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians - Salesian Sisters.

Sr. Cesira spent 75 years of her life as a Salesian Sister in the ministry of Catholic education and served primarily in New Jersey and California. Within her religious community she served in leadership roles on the local and provincial levels and for many years helped cultivate and nurture religious vocations as a member of the province formation team. Well into her 80's, when she could no longer be in active ministry due to failing health, she maintained contact by phone and by mail with the many past students and numerous people to whom she ministered. She had a zest for life and a winning smile that was characteristically hers. Even when illness weighed heavily upon her, she never refused a visit or a phone call from one of her countless friends. She enthusiastically took part in community prayer and get-togethers. Her devotion to the Mother of God, her deep faith and joyful demeanor were the hallmark signs of her Salesian vocation.


The visitation will be held at the Salesian Sisters Provincial House, 6019 Buena Vista Street, San Antonio on Monday, July, 11, 2016, beginning 4:00 P.M. and will end with the prayer of the holy Rosary beginning at 7:00 P.M. The Mass of the Resurrection will be celebrated at the Provincial House at 9:00 A.M. on July 12th. Interment will follow at San Fernando Archdiocesan Cemetery No. 2, San Antonio.


In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Sr. Cesira may be made to the Daughters of Mary Help of Christians to help support young women in formation who are preparing to become Salesian Sisters. Please send offerings to: Formation Program, 6019 Buena Vista Street, San Antonio, TX 78237. Thank you for your support.
