Pioneer Abbotsford nuns 52/12/3, a photo by Collingwood Historical Society on Flickr.
This photo is part of the Collingwood Historical Society contribution to the Flickr Friday Photos 2012 challenge under the theme Cemeteries.
The gravestone photographed here is not in Collingwood but honours the ten Good Shepherd nuns who established the order in Australia in 1863 at Abbotsford. The nuns were originally buried at the Abbotsford Convent but in 1975 were reburied here in the order’s burial ground in the Boroondara Cemetery at Kew.
I am wishing to locate the Burial or Monument for a great aunt Sister Teodore – Annie Louisa Wilson who passed away 3/5/1996. I think she was of the Sisters of the good shepherd.
Your great aunt Sr M Theodore is buried at Boroondara Cemetery in Kew with the other Good Shepherd nuns. I have emailed your the details.
