May Her Soul Rest In Peace

Age 89 

Sister Regina de Lourdes Regan, SC

Sister Regina de Lourdes Regan (Winifred) was born on March 29, 1922 in New York City, one of two daughters and two sons of Patrick and Regina Egan Regan.

Winifred attended Sts. Peter and Paul School in the Bronx, Cathedral High School and Grace Institute before entering the Sisters of Charity on September 7, 1940.

Sister Regina received a Bachelor of Science degree in Mathematics from the College of Mount Saint Vincent, a Bachelor of Science degree in Pharmacy from St. John College of Pharmacy and a Master of Science degree in Education from Richmond College, Staten Island.

Sister Regina’s first mission assignments were to Our Lady of Mt. Carmel School, St. Joseph School and St. Francis Xavier School (all in Manhattan) where she taught Grades 1 and 2. To this day some of those students from 60-plus years ago have kept in touch with her. After a year teaching Math and Science at Blessed Sacrament High School, Manhattan, she was missioned to live at St. Vincent’s Hospital, Staten Island, while studying Pharmacy at St. John’s Pharmacy College. Sister Regina returned to teaching Math and Science at the Academy of Mount Saint Vincent, Tuxedo Park; Saint Gabriel High School, New Rochelle; Saint Joseph-by-the-Sea High School, Staten Island and the Academy of the Resurrection, Rye. From 1973 to 1983, she taught Science and Chemistry at Our Lady of Victory High School, Dobbs Ferry and then returned to Resurrection, Rye, to teach Chemistry. In 1991 Sister Regina embraced a new challenge in her life when she became a GED teacher at Grace Institute Outreach Program in Manhattan.

“Wherever Sister Regina ministered, she lived well our mission as Sisters of Charity “to reveal God’s love….”

When Sr. Regina “retired” from teaching in 1997, she served as Pastoral Assistant at Resurrection Parish, Rye, where she visited the sick and elderly parishioners in their homes and nursing facilities.

Wherever Sister Regina ministered, she lived well our mission as Sisters of Charity “to reveal God’s love….” We rejoice with Sister Regina now as she meets her God “face to face,” the God whom she served so lovingly and faithfully.

Rest in peace, Sister Regina!
