Sister M. Angeline (Anna Mildred) Frantz, a member of the School Sisters of St. Francis of the United States Province in her 65th year of profession, died on Friday, June 10, 2016, at Vincentian Home in Pittsburgh, Pa. She was 84 

Sister Angeline entered the community in 1949 from SS. Cyril and Methodius Church in Charleroi, Pa., and professed her first vows in 1951 at Mount Assisi Convent in Pittsburgh, Pa. She received a Bachelor of Science in Education from Carlow University in Pittsburgh and a Master of Arts in Education from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh. 

Sister taught the primary grades from 1951 to 1983 in parishes where our sisters ministered and then spent 17 years ministering to the residents of Marian Hall Personal Care Home. For five of those years, she was the assistant administrator. From 2000, Sister Angeline was active in community service at Mount Assisi Convent until her retirement in 2011, when her ministry became one of prayer. Everyone remembers her as a happy person, always smiling even in her pain. She will be missed by the sisters and those who cared for her.

Sister Angeline was the daughter of the late Paul and Mary (Miklos) Frantz and was preceded in death by her five brothers: William, Paul, Albert, Rudy and Bernard; four sisters: Mary Gunchuck, Margaret Luzanski, Helen Woytovich and JoAnn Moffit. She is survived by her religious community, her sister Bernice Petrarca and brother Joseph Frantz, her nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews.
