Zone, Texas, California and Hawaii. She graduated from Leilehua High School,
Hawaii, and attended the University of Hawaii. Her family settled in Maine,
where she completed her bachelor's degree in English at St. Joseph's College.
In 1936 she entered the Sisters of Mercy in Portland and made her final
profession of vows in 1942. She received a master's degree in history from
Catholic University, Washington, D.C., and was accepted as a doctoral candidate
at St. Louis University. She spent the summer of 1959 in Turin, Italy,
as a Fulbright Scholar. In 1960 she received a Coe Fellowship in American
studies at Boston College. She also attended Georgetown University Secondary
School Administration Institute.
A great historian and a gifted storyteller, she spent 30 years in education.

St. Joseph's College in Standish, John Bapst High School in Bangor and
Cathedral High School in Portland, where she was also principal.

more interesting, made them come alive," said Sister Mary Morey. "It's
something she gave us in the community, too."

and By-Laws Committee. She was made an honorary trustee of the Mercy Hospital
after 15 years of service. She was also first assistant to the Major Superior

elected to by her religious community. Sister Higgins received several
honorary awards and citations over the years.

taking on challenges, Sister Mary Raymond became the Mercy Community Researcher

storytelling, this endeavor culminated in the writing and publishing of
the history of the Maine Sisters of Mercy entitled "For Love of Mercy:
Missioned in Maine and Andros Island, Bahama," published in 1995.
An outgoing, happy person, Sister Higgins could put anyone at ease
with her bright smile and graciousness. She was a Sister of Mercy in name,
spirit, and heart. Said Sister Morey, "She totally gave herself to this
way of life . . . she was a very generous person who loved this way of
life, religious life."

Agnes Boyce of Fairbanks, Alaska, and Cecilia Hewitt of Biddeford.
