Donor Spotlight: Margaret Ann Jablonski
Leaving a Meaningful Legacy to Support the Lasting Work of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine
In All Things Charity. Since her days as a student nurse and practicing nurse at St. John Hospital, Margaret Ann Jablonski has been inspired by this founding principle of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine (CSA) and their dedication to addressing the needs of the community. Their many works and ministries have instilled in her a commitment to nursing, her Catholic faith and the needs of others. Margaret Ann’s generous gift designation to Joseph’s Home and the Sister Joan Gallagher Endowment Fund through her annuity was a work of charity long in the making. Having known the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine for more than 50 years, Margaret Ann became a CSA Associate in 2005 and has been enriched by living out “In All Things Charity” in her daily life. That led her to being moved to designate a gift to the Sister Joan Gallagher Endowment Fund because it will assist in continuing to fill a critical need in the community and honors the work of the CSAs.
“I realized that the endowment fund was not only honoring Sr. Joan, but also honors all the CSA sisters and those who have worked in their ministries over the years. I felt called by the Holy Spirit to support this Endowment.” — Margaret Ann
