In Memoriam

Sister Angelica McGuire, OP


Sister Angelica McGuire, baptized Patricia McGuire, was born on March 14, 1929, in Snoqualmie, Washington. She was the fifth of seven children born to Michael and Mary Ellen (Carney) McGuire. Her father worked for Weyerhaeuser, a lumber mill company.  The family lived in the company town in Snoqualmie (also known for a while as Snoqualmie Falls) until 1931, when the Great Depression took its toll and the family returned to Seattle.   

In her autobiography Angelica wrote, “I attended St. Alphonsus School and Holy Angel High School and entered the Everett novitiate after graduation in 1947.”
