Kearney resident, 89

KEARNEY - Rose Dolores Hoelting, 89, of Kearney died Thursday, June 28, 2012, at Mount Carmel Home Keens Memorial.

She was born Cecilia Edna Hoelting on June 24, 1923, in Oconto to John and Dorothy Hoelting.

She was accepted into the Congregation of Corpus Christi Carmelite Sisters in Kearney on May 27, 1948. She did her religious training in Kearney and made her final vows here on Feb. 11, 1953. She was assigned to work in Duluth, Minn., and was in charge of making altar bread from 1958 to 1967. She then returned to Mount Carmel Home to help with the nursing and care of the elderly.

At some point, she completed three courses in nursing and received a diploma from the Chicago School of Nursing in February 1954. Sister Rose Dolores celebrated her 50th Jubilee with the Corpus Christi Carmelite Congregation July 22, 1998, in Kearney.

Sister Rose Dolores was one of the kindest, most loving and caring persons you would ever meet. She would always go that extra mile and was so thoughtful, showering love and affection all the way. She was the last of the hard-working sisters who pioneered Mount Carmel Home from its small beginning to what it is today.

She had a keen sense of humor and a twinkle in her eye. She was witty and could always come up with a saying that would make you laugh. At her 89th birthday party, with more than 50 of her family members there, when she saw the huge birthday cake with the 89 candles, she joked, "Well, I'm not 18, you know."

After giving her life to "serving the Lord with gladness," she slipped away peacefully to meet her God. Now, she is safely home.

Services will be at 10:30 a.m. Tuesday at St. James Catholic Church with the Rev. Tom Mullowney officiating. Burial will be at Kearney Cemetery. O'Brien-Straatmann-Redinger Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
