Sr. Margaretta Black O.S.F.

first_imgSr. Margaretta was born to Milton and Hedwig (nee: Poppe) Black in Chicago, Illinois where the family resided until she was three, and they moved to Indianapolis where she graduated from St. Joan of Arc School and St. Mary Academy. Margaretta often recalled her daily walks to school, Saturday movie matinees for 10 cents, streetcar rides to town, and victory gardens among her favorite childhood memories. The daughter of a German mother and first-generation father dedicated much of her life to education and was a graduate of Marian University, University of Cincinnati, Case Western Reserve University and the University of Wisconsin where she earned her doctorate degree.Margaretta taught in the Catholic elementary schools for eight years after which time she moved to the high school level, teaching French, religion and history.  Shortly thereafter she began her thirty nine years of ministry at Marian University serving in such roles as French Professor, Academic Dean, Project Manager, Chair of the Language Department and Director of Study Abroad.  She also served on the Marian University Board of Trustees as secretary and later as a member of the Board.Many speak of Margaretta as a gentle soul, purposeful, quick wit, and appreciation of flowers and beauty.  She liked to knit, sew, crochet and cook.  She loved the theatre, opera, country music and singing in the choir.  Visiting her Chicago cousins brought special joy.  Sipping a cup of hot tea, while reading a French novel, was a delight.  She was creative, a woman with a brilliant mind, prayerful, peaceful, private, and a very loving person.In reflecting upon her life, the Franciscan noted, “It has been a wondrous process of learning and living the evangelical life.  It has meant ministry through teaching and counseling, in music and in leadership positions.  It has given me a religious family rich in talent, irritatingly human, and delightfully solid.” In her later weeks of earthly life, Margaretta faced her human condition and spoke of going to her eternal home, her union with God.  She was ready to be called.  For God says, “Welcome home!  You are precious in my eyes and glorious and I love you.”    She is survived by cousins and preceded in death by her parents.  Visitation is Tuesday, September 5th, from 1 – 3 p.m. at the convent chapel in Oldenburg.  Funeral services follow at 3 p.m. with Rev. Bill Turner officiating. Memorials may be made to the Srs. of St. Francis, P.O. Box 100, Oldenburg, IN, 47036 (www.OldenburgFranciscans.org).  Weigel Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.last_img read more

Transfer: Real Madrid Plan Big for Mbappe Swoop

first_imgShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram ​Real Madrid’s transfer budget for the coming year has been revealed after club delegates met to approve the club’s financial accounts – with a plan in place to try and lure Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.News of the war chest at Zinedine Zidane’s disposal comes only a few weeks since the end of the summer transfer window, a period which saw Los Blancos splash out just shy of a whopping £280m.Nevertheless, despite the significant outlay, there still appears to be plenty of money in the bank after ​AS disclosed the details of the aforementioned financial accounts. While the cash parted with was significant, the club did also recoup money to the tune of £117m by selling fringe stars such as Mateo Kovacic and Marcos Llorente. All in all though, the Spanish publication report that  € 156m (£139m) is available to the club in liquid assets, while a further  € 285m (£254m) is available in credit. The credit in question is  a loan which ​Madrid  have been offered that bears highly favourable interest rates and conditions, should they be willing to splash out on any large-scale investment. This credit is  separate  from the loan arrangement the club have in place to redevelop their Santiago Bernabeu stadium.With a wealth of funding made available to Zidane to invest, it opens the door for Los Blancos to make a big-money ‘Galactico’ addition next year. AS claim the player in question is almost certainly ​Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain, who they state would be easily affordable with only the player’s willingness the necessary hurdle to overcome.It seems as if  Madrid have a  plan in motion to make the deal  achievable , by trying to  persuade  Mbappe not to renew his current deal with PSG which runs out in June 2022.In doing so, the French outfit would then be obliged to either offer him a new deal, or sell him before he runs down his contract which finishes in J une 2022. That would mean that next summer, the French club would be obliged to offer him a new deal or sell him before he is able to run down his contract and eventually leave on a free – a move that would allow Madrid to pounce.​Neymar is also mentioned, but that could prove problematic due to the player’s desire to return to Barcelona over their La Liga rivals, coupled with growing injury concerns over the Brazilian, leaving Mbappe as the primary target.center_img Kylian Mbappe,last_img read more
