"Well Known Sister Passes Away"
"Sister Marguerite died on Thursday at St. Agatha's Home Nanuet as the result of a rheumatic affliction which she suffered sometime recently and finally reached
her heart. The funeral is to be held this Saturday morning with appropriate services at the Nanuet Convent.
"Sister Marguerite was born Miss Margaret Creedon and for the past 27 years has been a faithful and efficient worker in the order of the Sisters of Charity holding several prominent positions of responsibility in various Catholic institutions prior to her becoming connected with the Nanuet institution. She was at one time a teacher in old St. Mary's Academy on East Broadway, New York city and later superior of the Sisters of Charity connected with St. Ann's church in Nyack.
"Hers is the fourth death in her family in a little while. First her mother died and her death was followed by that of a brother, the Rev. Father Creedon who was
pastor at Ossining, and then the death of her father, as told some time ago.
"Sister Marguerite was a sister of Mrs. John P. Cleary, who together with two other sisters, Mrs. Simon P. Donnelly and Miss Hannah Creedon, and one brother Patrick Creedon, survive her."
