OBITUARIES

Sister Georgette Chasse, RSM

Posted:

CUMBERLAND — Sister Mary Georgette Chasse, RSM, 90, a Sister of Mercy for 72 years died Monday, May 4, at Mount St. Rita Health Centre. She was the daughter of the late John and Laura (Delobbe) Chasse. She was the sister of the late John J. Chasse and the late Laurette Lisi. She is survived by her brothers George, Raymond and Robert and her sister, Dorothy Chasse.

When Sister Georgette pronounced her vows as a Sister of Mercy, she had inscribed in her ring the words “I Am All Thine.” And, that was how she served her God all her life. Whether teaching in a number of schools in Rhode Island, or as Principal of St. Xavier Academy in Providence, or as Director of the Office of Religious in the Diocese of Providence or, ministering in Pastoral Care at St. Joseph’s Hospital — all was done in God’s name.

Besides being an educator and a caring person, Sister Georgette shared her musical ability whenever she could. She loved music and welcomed an invitation to play the organ or direct a choir. The music she made brought joy to others.  May her loving presence and her music linger in the hearts of those who will miss her.

A private burial service will be held Friday, May 8, 2020 at Resurrection Cemetery Chapel, Cumberland. A Memorial Mass and Celebration of Life will be held for Sister Georgette at a later date. In lieu of flowers, contributions in Sister’s memory to the Sisters of Mercy, 15 Highland View Road, Cumberland, RI 02864 will be appreciated.
