Sister Aniceta Shalz, Sister Theonilla Stessman and Sister Edmunda Pusch celebrated 75 years as Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica Feb. 10, the feast of St. Scholastica.
ATCHISON, Kan. - Not one, not two, but three Benedictine Sisters of Mount St. Scholastica celebrated 75 years in the community on Feb. 10, the feast of St. Scholastica.

Sister Aniceta Shalz was born in Wathena, Kan., and will be remembered by hundreds of students in the Kansas City area for her years of service as a music and vocal instructor at the former St. James School and the former Bishop Lillis High School.

After receiving her undergraduate degree in music from the Mount, Sister Aniceta earned a master's degree in education from the University of Notre Dame. She retired from teaching in 1987, but continues to provide music for the sisters both for liturgy and for entertainment.

Sister Edmunda Pusch was born in Hanston, Kan., and moved with her family to Atchison two years before she decided to join the community. She has devoted her life to domestic service at the Mount, assisting with the cooking, baking and other tasks for both the sisters and the students at Mount St. Scholastica Academy.

Sister Theonilla Stessman was born in Earling, Iowa, and received her degree in English at the Mount before beginning a long career as a teacher in elementary and high schools. In addition to her classroom work, hundreds of children over the years have received stuffed animals that Sister Theonilla had crafted by hand.

Soon after her anniversary celebration, Sister Theonilla passed away.
