My thoughts are with Sr. Anna Clare's family and friends.
I had the privilege of working along side Sister as a Principal with the OSSB. A hardworking, dedicated educator that contributed greatly into the betterment of the students and the Board. Unfortunately I am out of the country and will not be able to attend the service.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Sister Anna Clare. As a key builder of Immaculata high school and the Immaculata foundation, she leaves a legacy that has impacted many generations of students and staff.

So many many memories of dinner and euchre at the dining room table at 1208 Albany. Never forgot sitting in one time when Sr. Anna Clare loudly shouted “You’re bobtailed!” I almost dove under the this day I don’t know what it means! Sister worked hard in everything she did and truly cared about everyone she met. May she enjoy Eternal life with Jesus. Debbie Sinclair

To know Sr. Anna Clare was never to forget or ignore her. She was force of intelligence and compassion - as many homeless students in Ottawa will know as well as any teacher who needed a ready ear and support. The members of OECTA across the province and all Ontario teachers enjoy the fruits of her labours and leadership. I was privileged to call her a friend. Doug Knott
