Sister Elizabeth Travers (Mary Charlotte)

WEST HARTFORD, Conn. — Sister Elizabeth Travers (Mary Charlotte) of the Sisters of Mercy died peacefully on Nov. 2, 2017, at St. Mary Home, West Hartford.

Born in Berlin, N.H., the daughter of the late John F. and Annie (Murtagh) Travers on April 15, 1921, she was raised in Berlin, and entered the Sisters of Mercy, in Connecticut, on June 24, 1938. She professed her religious vows on Jan. 2, 1941.

For the next three decades, Sister Liz taught primary grade children in multiple Catholic elementary schools throughout Connecticut, becoming an expert first grade teacher. Always eager to learn, Sister Liz earned a bachelor of science degree from St. Joseph College (now University of St. Joseph) and received master of arts degrees from Boston College in Religious Studies and University of Bridgeport in reading, achieving her desire to become a reading specialist.

She used her combined talents to benefit an even greater number of students. She became the director of religious education at St. Mark Church in West Hartford, Conn., for almost a decade before coming full circle back to her first love of pre-school children as director of the School for Young Children, at the University of St. Joseph.

Due to illness in her family, Sister Liz returned to New Hampshire to care for her sibling Margie, remaining there through Margie’s death. She considered this mercy ministry one of privilege.

Even in Berlin, she participated in parish ministry at St. Kieran Church, dedicating her scant, free time to the service of others, God’s own. She returned to West Hartford to enjoy retirement until, in her 79th year as a sister, her own health failed.

A woman of diversified interests, Liz was adventuresome, loved travel, cross country skiing, card games, especially Bridge, and small animals. She had fine taste and particularly enjoyed providing fun and hospitality to colleagues and friends.

Sister Liz was the youngest of five daughters, each sister has predeceased her. She is survived by several nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, cousins and her grateful community of the Sisters of Mercy.

A Mass of Resurrection was celebrated on Wednesday, Nov. 8, at 6 p.m. St. Mary Home Chapel at 2021 Albany Ave., West Hartford, preceded by calling hours beginning at 3 p.m.

Burial will take place on Thursday, Nov. 9, at 9 a.m. at St. Mary Cemetery in West Hartford. In lieu of flowers, those wishing to make a memorial gift in Sister Liz's name are asked to consider Sisters of Mercy, 25 Prescott Street West Hartford, CT 06110.
