Sister Patricia sadly died on Monday night. She joined the La Retraite Sisters after reading Classics at University. Whilst still in her twenties she became Head of the La Retraite Convent here in Salisbury. Went on to Weston-super-Mare in 1971 to help run the Convent and School there. Became Provincial Superior in this country in 1977 and then on to Superior General of the Order in 1982.
