Mary-Jean-Kubilus-77da43e7e59a4e4321a502e5e797af95Mary Jean Kubilus, SCN, was called to her heavenly home on March 22, 2016, at the age of 87, and in the 66th year of her religious life. Sister entered the Congregation of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity from St. Michael Parish in Jessup, Pennsylvania in 1949.

Sister Mary Jean received her B.Ed. and M.Ed. degrees with Permanent Certification in Elementary Administration from Duquesne University and served the Church as an Elementary teacher and principal in the Dioceses of Pittsburgh and Greensburg, Pennsylvania and Youngtown, Ohio for 48 years. Her career in education was followed by 10 years of service at the Vincentian Childcare Center in Pittsburgh. When illness forced her into retirement she served the people of God through her prayer ministry.

Sister Mary Jean had a deep love and respect for her family and community and credited her religious vocation to the deep faith and sacrifice of her mother and brother. She valued education and delighted in the fact that her different ministry positions enabled her to reach and touch the lives of so many people. Sister loved her family and treasured the times she could vacation with them and her friends. She also had a great love for animals, especially her cat, Cali.

Sister Mary Jean was preceded in death by her parents Walter and Anna Kubilus and her brothers Joseph, Walter and Edward. She is survived by her sister Dolores (Frank) Dubas, nieces and nephews, and her Sisters in Community.
