Remembering Sister Teresa Trayers, SND

Sister Teresa Trayers was born on Nov. 28, 1929, in Hyde Park, Massachusetts, as Dorothy Theresa to John Trayers and Theresa (Jordan) Trayers. She entered as a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur in 1948, following in the footsteps of her Aunt, Sister Teresa Patricia, and her teachers at Notre Dame Academy Roxbury.   
In 1974, she volunteered to come to Bishop Stang High School where she remained until 1998. At Stang, Sister Teresa served as a teacher for a while and then spent the rest of her career here as a guidance counselor. Sister refers to her time here as “a very special time in my life.” After having our National Honor Society chapter named after her, Sister Teresa retired from Stang in June of 1998 after completing 24 years of service. 
In 2018, Sister Teresa was inducted into the Bishop Stang High School Hall of Honor, with the following description:

"Sister Teresa served Bishop Stang as a math teacher and guidance counselor from 1975 to 1998. Sister Teresa offered positive support to a generation of students and led the National Honor Society to prominence. As the Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur left the school, Sister Teresa remained, serving as a living link to the Sisters’ community. Her commitment ensured Bishop Stang’s mission continued to include service to others, and in the spirit of St. Julie Billiart, to 'make known the goodness of God.'"

We pray that Sister Teresa rests in eternal peace.
