Seeking Cards for St. Gwen

If you were a student at St. Boniface in the 50's then you know of Sr. Gwen (then, Sr. de Maria). You loved her energy, skill and ability to play games and still teach you how to read, write and add during 1st and 2nd grade. She is celebrating her 75th year as a School Sister of St. Francis and they are asking you to remember her by sending her a card that lets her know she has not been forgotten.

She is amazingly well, active in her 90's, prays for her students, talks about Waumandee and still does some art work. The celebration (because of covid) will take place virtually, during May and she can receive cards any day. Her actual day of reception into the order was June 13, 1946.

If you wish to mail a card to her, her address is: Sr. Gwen Floryance, 1501 S. Layton Blvd., Milwaukee, WI 53215-1924. On June 13, Ann Schmidtknecht Garrison plans to go to sister's residence with flowers and balloons.

If you prefer to have her receive the card that day, you can mail it to: Ann Garrison, 6865 S. 118th St., Franklin, WI 53132. Please mark it "Sr. Gwen". She will collect them and take them to her on that special day.

If you have questions, you can email Ann at or call/text at 414-732-4661.
