Sister Mary John Burke was a Saint on earth and I am positive that
she is resting peacefully in the arms of Jesus. I know her since 1965 and no matter what she was going through she still gave you a smile. I will miss her very much.
With deepest sympathy

Sister Mary John Burke was a Sister of the Sisters of Reparation, Congregation of Mary order. She was the last surviving sister of the order at Saint Zita's Villa in Monsey. She professed her vows in 1949 entering the order. Sisters continued her ministry filled with sacrifice and acts of love as she performed the work of the order actively serving women and living her life for the Lord. We were blessed to having known her since 2003 visiting her frequently at the Villa and in nursing homes.
With love Bob and Rita Reers (she called us her brother and sister).

"She gives most who gives with joy. Peace begins with a smile." -Saint Teresa
