There are three Ursuline Sisters celebrating 60 years of religious life. We honor the first today, Sister Kathleen Dueber, a native of Shawnee Mission, Kan.
Sister Kathleen was an Ursuline Sister of Paola, Kan., prior to the merger of that community with Mount Saint Joseph in 2008. Sister Kathleen is a faith-filled, nurturing person who always has a sense of when someone is in need. She loves to sing and is a big fan of Kansas City area sports teams. She earned a bachelor’s degree in history from Marillac College (St. Louis) in 1969, and a master’s degree in school administration from the University of Kansas in 1984.
In Kansas, she was a teacher at St. Philip Neri School, Osawatomie (1965), at Holy Trinity, Paola (1967-68) and at St. Agnes, Roeland Park (1966, 1969-74, 1978-84); and assistant principal (1984-85) and principal (1985-89) of Queen of the Holy Rosary School, Overland Park. She served in Motherhouse ministries in Paola as bookkeeper (1974-78), director of Monica Hall (1989-96), massage therapist (1997-2009), sacristan (2000-2009), medical claims handler (2002-09), vocation director (2006-08) and property manager (2018-19). She served on the Leadership Council (2002-08) and corporation board (2002-09). At Maple Mount, she served on the Leadership Council (2010-16) and offered transportation to the Sisters (2009-18, 2019-20), including three years as transportation coordinator. She is retired at the Motherhouse and is active in the Powerhouse of Prayer.
