Partners in Mission

During this Thanksgiving season, we extend our appreciation to two employees who minister alongside the Ursuline Sisters.

Sister Margaret Manion

It would be unusual to go anywhere in the Toledo area without someone saying, “Hello, Sr. Margaret!” In her role as transportation coordinator for the Sisters, organizer of community activities, part-time assistant in the Convent Archives and at St. Ursula Academy, and doing whatever she learns needs to be done, Sr. Margaret truly lives the Ursuline Sisters’ mission statement of “being available for any work of charity.”

Not one to sit still, no two days are ever the same for Sr. Margaret. “It keeps the cobwebs from falling into place,” she says with her always present smile. “I love mixing it up, interacting with people and putting joy in everything I do.”

Sr. Margaret served on the Ursuline Council for eight years and earlier for another four years. She also served at St. Ursula Academy for 30 years, taking care of the physical plant and whatever else needed to be done.

Sr. Margaret is a parishioner at Little Flower Catholic Church. In her free time she enjoys going for walks and working on her recycling efforts at the Convent Offices, Ursuline Center and at home.

 

Tami Weaver
Tami has been at the Ursuline Center for 18 years this November as the Social Services Director. Her responsibilities include coordinating admissions, completing assessments for the state, scheduling care conferences, helping residents settle in, and making arrangements for safe discharges home. Tami was recruited 18 years ago to work for the Sisters and help to get the facility certified. She enjoys building relationships with the residents and her coworkers. “These people have truly become part of my family,” Tami says.

Tami has been married for 24 years to her husband Andrew and the couple has 2 children, Haley who is a registered nurse at Toledo Hospital and Hunter who is attending the University of South Carolina. She also has 3 fur babies - Oscar and Penny, both Dachshunds, and Sydney, a Greyhound, along with being a grandma to 2 fur babies – Addison, a Greyhound, and Mr. Bojangles, a French Bulldog. She enjoys taking them for walks, loves to ski in the winter and likes to hone her baking skills by watching shows on PBS.
