This obituary is part of a series about people who have died in the coronavirus pandemic. Read about others here.

When Sister Angela Marie Rooney was 98 years old, she moved out of the Roman Catholic Convent of Mary the Queen in Yonkers, N.Y., and into an assisted living facility run by Jewish Home Lifecare in the Bronx. Isn’t that the way faith goes in New York?

The moves by Sister Angela and 22 other Sisters of Charity into the home that year were inevitable. Fewer young women were becoming nuns, meaning there was not enough money in the order to maintain the convent; the existing nuns were aging into advanced care; and the Jewish Home was one of the few places that could accommodate so many new residents at once.

But it was a leap for the nuns. “I wanted my convent, my great big chapel, my Stations of the Cross,” Sister Angela told The Associated Press in 2015, describing her first impressions. “The very name ‘Jewish Home’ turned me off.” She added, “I don’t think anyone came here with a heavier heart than me.”

“The next time I saw her,” Ms. Hearty said, “she thanked me for it and said how lovely it was, and she hoped I didn’t mind, but she gave it to one of the ladies who worked in the home, because she had been so kind to her.”

In 1917, the Sisters of Charity of New York were celebrating the 100th Anniversary of our arrival in New York City. On February 22 of that year, Catherine Cecilia was born to Hugh and Bridget Hearty Rooney in Manhattan. Catherine entered the Sisters of Charity on February 2, 1939, receiving the name Sister Angela Marie.

Sister Angela Marie, now in her seventy-ninth year as a Sister of Charity, served in education for forty years where she taught grades one through eight. In 1979 she joined the staff at Sisters of Charity Center and served in several capacities until 2010 with a level of skill and precision that is unequaled to this day.

Two years after her retirement, Sister Angela moved to the Convent of Mary the Queen. In 2014, she was one of twenty-three Sisters that moved to the Jewish Home LifeCare assisted living facility on University Avenue in the Bronx (now The New Jewish Home). In an interview with the Associated Press, Sister Angela was quoted as saying, “I don’t think anyone came here with a heavier heart than me.”

But in a short time Sister Angela Marie came to love her new home and welcomed the opportunity to continue the mission of charity in a community that includes not only lay people, but also those of different faiths.

As part of her regular routine, Sister Angela stops by every table at breakfast to great her fellow residents with a warm smile. During her daily one-mile walk, she often picks up groceries for those in need. When a new resident moves in, she is among the first to greet them and help them feel at home in their new environment. Still quite adept with the computer, Sister Angela never misses an opportunity to make others feel special with one of her homemade cards. For these reasons the staff at the New Jewish Home loves Sister Angela as much as her fellow residents love her.

At her recent birthday celebration, Sister Angela thanked all for making her 100th birthday so special. She was particularly grateful to her fellow Sisters saying, “All hail and praise to you, my congregation, whom I love, for all you have done for me.” Sister Jane Iannucelli, SC, President of the Sisters of Charity, responded for the Congregation proclaiming, “Angela, all praise and hail to you from your Congregation, who loves you so much and is grateful for all you have been and done.” God bless Sister Angela Marie Rooney, SC, now in her second century of a life lived in love.
