To Praise To Bless To Preach

Sr. Shirley L. Owens, OP+ (January 1934 – June 2012)

Sister Shirley was born in Houston, Texas. After graduation from St. Agnes Academy, Sr. Shirley entered the Dominican Sisters of Houston in 1955 and professed her final vows in 1961.  During her 57 years of religious life, she taught in Houston, Port Arthur, Galveston and Austin.  In 1966, Sr. Shirley co-founded St. Catherine Montessori Catholic School in Houston and was its director for 25 years.  For the past 13 years, she taught at Sacred Heart School in Rockport, Texas.  She loved little children and spent all of her teaching career in the primary grades. In her gentle, loving way, she celebrated every child's success and was delighted by their accomplishments. She has been a great friend to so many and a great teacher to countless children.
