This was about the time that my older sister, Diane, joined the order. Diane became known as Sister Marie Yvonne*. Over the years, Sister Marie Yvonne, helped with the production of the fruitcakes.
Sister Theresa kept that family recipe a secret even though others helped in the production. Sister Theresa was born in 1904 so as the years wore on, her superiors became concerned that if something happened to her no one would know the recipe.

Sister Theresa passed away in 1990 but her family recipe is safe with the Dominican Sisters of Mission San Jose.
Sister Marie Yvonne passed away six years ago this Thursday. I miss her.
