Sister Frances Therese Whooley CCVI, a Sister in the Congregation of the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word - Houston, was born in 1915 in Ireland and passed in 2009 in Houston, Texas. Her first professional ministry was as a Registered Medical Records Librarian. She served in the Schumpert Hospital in Shreveport, the St. Frances Cabrini Hospital in Alexandria, and the St. Patrick Hospital in Lake Charles. In 1983 she became a patient representative and continued her fundraising and outreach ministries in the CHRISTUS - St. John Hospital in Nassau Bay, TX. Her artistic talent was shared generously, and her watercolors and oil paintings grace many an office and home. CHRISTUS - St. John, where Sister Frances worked in 2005, took in many
Katrina refugees.
