Sr Vittorina Lamperti, FDCC
of the Canossian Daughters of Charity in Singapore passed away yesterday, 27 October 2016. She had celebrated her 100th birthday exactly five months earlier.

Sr Vittorina was born in Parabiago, Italy on 27 May 1916 as the youngest of eight children. She joined her local Association of Catholic Action at six years old. At her first Holy Communion, Sr Vittorina told Jesus how much she loved him. She wished to give herself totally to God and even go to the ends of the earth to serve Him. She was 15 when she first felt the call to religious life.

At 18, Sr Vittorina joined the Canossian novitiate at Vimercate, Italy with the intention of becoming a missionary. She made her first profession on 9 August 1938, in Welwyn Garden City, England. After World War II, Sr Vittorina was posted to the mission territory of Malaya and worked both in Kluang and Singapore. She taught in Canossa Convent Primary School and took care of the boys’ section in the Home run by the Sisters. When she retired from teaching, she helped to set up a kindergarten in Taman Jurong, Singapore. She also taught in the parish kindergarten of the Church of St Francis of Assisi.

Sr Vittorina’s wake is currently being held in St Joseph’s Home at 9 Mandai Estate, Singapore 729906. Her funeral Mass will be held on 31 October 2016.
