Farewell Sister Theresa Kruml


Love of God and care for the people
Journeying through over 70 years of your
religious life
33 years of teaching in schools
Grateful students you have fondly

For the love of the needy and the sick
You immersed yourself in clinical
pastoral education
Earning the respect of senior adult
Attaining your purpose and
meaning of life

“Serving God with a loving heart”
“Accepting life’s daily crosses”
“To grow in God’s love”
“A listening heart, joyful spirit and trust in God’s Divine Mercy”

Your words of wisdom will forever be hovering our hearts
Inspiring and guiding us in our journey
to eternal life
Thank you Sister Theresa Kruml
You will be dearly missed

  1. Can you help me with a current address/telephone number for S. Theresa Kruml? My last note to her at 623 Fairchild St. was returned to me.
    I taught with her at Blessed Sacrament Church in Omaha, NE – heard from her last year but this year my note was returned to me.
    Thank you very much –

    1. Please check with St. Wenceslaus Parish in Iowa City. The parish may be able to provide you with that information.
      Thank you,
      The Catholic Messenger staff
