Margaret was was a graduate of St. Michael Catholic High School and DePaul University in Chicago. From 1956-1970, she was a Sister of the Holy Family of Nazareth, and was given the name Sister Edwardine Stryck.
She was a woman of detail and organization, working in the Business Office of DePaul University, and later as a bookkeeper for Bailey’s Discount Center as well as volunteering her bookkeeping skills for her Church, St. Thomas Aquinas.
She cared for her mother for many years and also cared for elderly neighbors in the Beverly neighborhood in Chicago. She made many friends whom she considered to be part of her family… past and current neighbors, church friends, and those she met along the way in her community. She also had several dogs over the years that she dearly loved—Teika, Teiki, Daisy, Nikko, Bailey, and Kodi; several who were rescued.
She was a woman of great faith; not only shown in her service to the church, but in her daily life as well. She is now enjoying the fulfillment of her faith in heaven. When you see daisies remember her smile.
