It was with great sadness that we learnt these past days of the death of Sr. Teresita Weind, SNDdeN.


She served as Congregational Leader of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur (SNDdeN) for 14 years, died on April 28, 2024 at 81 years of age, after some months of painful suffering at Mount Notre Dame Health Center (MNDHC) in Cincinnati, Ohio.

A Catholic Sister for sixty-four years, she had served two terms in General Leadership, from 2008-2014, and 2014-2022 in Rome, Italy. She was the 19th Superior General of the SNDdeN Congregation, known, praised and loved internationally for her charismatic, spiritual Leadership in her Religious Congregation as well as with other Women Religious.

Throughout her two mandates, Sr. Teresita participated frequently in Rome with the International Union of Superiors General (UISG).


Sr. Mary Johnson, SNDdeN, Congregational Leader and 20th Superior General, and the Congregational Leadership Team speak for the Sisters internationally: “We are grateful forever for Sr. Teresita’s generous sharing with us of her abundant gifts as Congregational Leader for fourteen years. The depth of her spirituality and the breadth of her vision continue to inspire us in all that we can be as Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, serving on five continents. Her extraordinary life and ministries constitute an enduring legacy of love.”


May she rest in peace in the loving arms of God.
