Dear Parents and Guardians,
Peace. Sister Beatrice (Bess) Elizabeth DeSantis, who was principal at Norwood-Fontbonne Academy in the 1980’s, entered eternal life on Monday, April 6, 2015. Sister’s funeral will take place on Thursday, April 9th, with her viewing at 1:30 PM and her Mass of Christian Burial at 3 PM at Saint Joseph Villa.

During her leadership, Sister brought much joy and passion for the NFA mission to our school community. Together we hold Sister’s family and the Sisters of St. Joseph in our prayer and hearts as we experience the passing of Sr. Beatrice.

I ask that you share this information with other families and friends who knew Sr. Beatrice in her years at NFA.

Blessings,
Sr. Mary Helen
