She was a my mentor as well as my French and Spanish teacher at Mount St Joseph Academy in London .
I was so blessed to meet her in 1968 . We became very close friends , as we enjoyed the same music ( The Moody Blues )
We continued our friendship until graduation and beyond. She encouraged me to love Spanish and French, even encouraging me
to give Italian a try.
She loved sports and was a great sport and fan at Catholic Central High School. She was little but mighty !
I have so many wonderful memories of Sister Mary Talpas and I cherish her guidance and love.
My condolences to all...I will cherish her forever .

My deepest sympathy to all who loved and laughed as I did, with Sr. Assumpta. I was lucky enough to spend the year in Ottawa with her while we studied Canon Law. Many a phone call passed between us as she dragged me kicking and screaming through Latin homework! It was a year I cherish deeply. Be at Peace, my Friend.
Love, Patricia Nelson (Mary Robert).
