Sister Christopher (Mary) Weber, O.S.B., passed away Nov. 21, 2013, in St. Cloud, Minn. Sr. Christopher was one of the Benedictine sisters who lived, prayed, and worked at Saint Anselm College. She taught in the education department from 1972 until her return to her Benedictine community in Minnesota a few years ago. Sr. Christopher also served as chair of the education department and coordinator of field placements, and served on several statewide education committees.
A native of Montana, Sr. Christopher earned a bachelor's degree in English at the College of Saint Benedict. She earned a master's degree in education administration and guidance at the State University of Iowa and a master's degree in education at the University of Maine.
"Sr. Christopher was a role model and an inspiration," says Dr. Laura Wasielewski, chair and director of the Department of Education. "She was a very strong woman, incredibly warm, and committed to her students."
The Sister Christopher M. Weber, O.S.B. Award in Teacher Education is presented annually to a student who embodies her characteristics.
