Sister Marguerite Luddon entered the Sisters of Divine Providence from her home parish, Sacred Heart Catholic Church, in Florissant, Mo. She was most influenced to enter religious life by her teachers in grade school—Sisters of Divine Providence—especially Sister Mary Ann Haug. Most of her ministry was spent in education; she was a teacher. She is currently the area assistant in St. Louis.
Sister Margie tells the story of when she was a child and found a ring in a small tin box in a closet at home. “I took the ring—it almost fit—and wore it.” Her mom told her the ring had belonged to her grandmother. When she entered the convent at Mount Providence, she brought all her earthly possessions, including the ring. She wore the ring every day, until the novice mistress, Sister Aurelia Fechte, asked her to give her the ring so that she could “save it for later.” Sister Margie actually forgot about it; however, when it came time for her final profession of vows, she received a wonderful surprise. “Unbeknownst to me,” she said, “my grandmother’s ring had been sent to a jeweler and made into my final vow ring.”
In her spare time, Sister Margie enjoys art, movies, and reading.
