Sister M. Fudalla
February 28, 2021 - September 02, 2014
A Sister of Charity of Nazareth, passed into eternal life on September 2, 2014, at the age of 94 and in the 79th year of her religious life. She entered the Congregation of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity from St. Michael Parish in Munhall, PA in 1935. Sister Concepta received her bachelor of education degree from Duquesne University. Of her 49 years in her ministry in education, Sister taught the primary grades for 30 years in the Dioceses of Pittsburgh and Greensburg and in St. Catharines, Canada for 19 years. She was a dedicated principal and teacher who rejoiced at every opportunity to gently form the minds of the little ones in her care. No work was too tiring or difficult, as she endeavored to challenge them, not only to intellectual growth but also to a greater love for God. When Sister retired from teaching, she served as Pastoral Minister in Fonthill, Canada for 16 years. She left her mission in Canada to administer home care to her ailing brother and sister. Four years later, Sister Concepta returned to St. Louise Convent, where she spent her final days in Prayer Ministry and also in serving anyone who asked her help. She remained active until the day prior to her death. She is fondly remembered as a very prayerful, industrious, and fun-loving person. Sister Concepta was predeceased by her parents, John and Johanna Fudalla; her brother, John; and sisters, Mary and Ann. She is survived by two nieces, Anita Fudalla and Melissa (Charles) Stoebe; grandnephews, grandnieces, and many friends and Sisters in Community. Friends will be received at St. Louise Convent (formerly the Vincentian Motherhouse), 8200 McKnight Road., Pittsburgh, PA, on Thursday, September 4, 2014, from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Friday, September 5, 2014, from 9 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered at the St. Louise Convent Chapel at 11 a.m. Interment will follow in the convent cemetery.
