Ursuline Cemeteries Add Brief History to Ursuline Markers

Posted 5/28/2018

Over the past year the Legacy Committee has been discussing ways to preserve the Ursuline Archives.

Resurrection Cemetery, HIll Avenue, Toledo - to give you an idea of the result


One of the issues that arose last October at their meeting, was signage with a brief history of the Community at the four cemeteries where the Ursulines are buried. The committee began the process of what could be included in the history and this was then shared with the Leadership Team. 

Sister Margaret Manion, Councilor, had previously expressed interest in having something at the Ursuline cemeteries after seeing this in other women religious communities’ cemeteries. The Leadership Team contacted Coyle’s Funeral Home for advice and eventually Mike Faehnle, AICA of Maumee Valley Memorials in Waterville, OH, was contacted to do the work.

Michelle Scazzero, Publications Director for the Ursuline Sisters, wrote up a brief history, and adapted some of the wording to reflect the different cemetery locations. The Ursuline Sisters are buried in Mt. Carmel, Calvary, and Resurrection cemeteries in Toledo, and in St. Joseph Parish cemetery in Tiffin, OH.
