Sister M. Geraldine Kemper, OP

Sister Geraldine’s longest ministry was the 23 years she served as principal at Holy Family School Decatur, Ill., (1992-2015)—nearly half of her life as a Dominican Sister of Springfield. Since 2015 she’s become a familiar face at Rosary High School in Aurora where she is outreach coordinator and facilities manager. She welcomes families to the school, is ever-present at alumnae events, and is a great booster for the value of a Rosary college prep education.

She began her education ministry in fourth and sixth grade classrooms at St. Patrick School, Springfield, Ill., (1973-1977) and then taught at Our Lady of Grace, Chicago (1977-1981) before being named principal (and 8th grade teacher) at St. Charles Borromeo School, Hampshire, Ill. (1981-1987) Sister Geraldine then was the principal at Cathedral School, Springfield, Ill. (1987-1992).

Wherever she serves, Sister Geraldine share her enthusiasm for Catholic education and Dominican life.

Sister Geraldine will celebrate her golden jubilee with her Dominican Sisters and her siblings: brothers Tom and Vince, and sisters Nancy Masters and Gayle Trowbridge.
