Sister Cora Marie Davin, SC, 85, died Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010, at Caritas Christi, the motherhouse of the Sisters of Charity of Seton Hill in Greensburg. Born in Pittsburgh, Sister Cora Marie entered the congregation of the Sisters of Charity on Jan. 1, 1945, from St. Peter Parish, North Side, Pittsburgh. Preceded in death by her parents, John P. and Mary Elizabeth (Frawley) Davin, and a brother, William R. Davin, she is survived by her sister-in-law, Jean Davin; five nieces; and a nephew. She earned a bachelor's degree in history, English from Seton Hill University and a master's degree in English from Duquesne University. Later, Sister Cora Marie took classes in gerontology at the universities of Pittsburgh, Ohio State, and Syracuse. Sister Cora Marie taught elementary school students in the dioceses of Altoona-Johnstown, Greensburg, and Pittsburgh. She also taught at Elizabeth Seton, Canevin, and Monongahela Valley high schools. After years of teaching, in the mid-'70s, Sister Cora Marie began working with the City of Pittsburgh senior citizen centers. She was an assistant director and recreation leader at centers in Hazelwood, Beechview, Oakland, Lawrenceville and the West End. She later ministered in housing, becoming director of the East Brady Heights Housing Unit, Clarion County; Ridgeview Apartments, Mt. Pleasant, and the Honus Wagner Plaza in Carnegie. As physical disabilities developed and prevented her from active ministry, Sister Cora Marie moved to Caritas Christi and continued to volunteer her services at the gift shop and at the reception desk. Her ready smile and cheerful manner will be missed as she leaves us to join the Company of Charity in a heavenly homeland. Friends received from 3 to 7 p.m. Monday and Tuesday at Caritas Christi, 129 DePaul Center Road, Greensburg. Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Chapel of the Assumption, Caritas Christi. Burial will be in Sisters' Cemetery, Seton Hill, Greensburg. Memorial
