Sr Clare Goodman CJ

Sister Clare Goodman CJ died in York on Friday 24th June 2016.

Sr Clare was educated at Ascot and entered the novitiate there in 1942. After a degree in History, Classics and Maths at Reading University, she taught at St Mary’s Shaftesbury, later becoming headmistress there for six years. A move to Zimbabwe followed, and she spent happy years teaching in Chishawasha and Bulawayo. Later life saw Sr Clare taking care of the community of elderly sisters in St Joseph’s, York, and she also showed great love and concern for the homeless community in York’s parks. We celebrated Sr Clare’s funeral in York on 8th July, where Sr Gertie McManus CJ shared a lovely tribute. May she rest in peace.
