  • Burial: She was buried in St John Cemetery, Little Chute, Wisconsin, Old/7/4.
  • Occupation: She was a Racine Dominican.
  • Note: Sister M. Angela Karls, OSD
    Born to earthly life: August 21, 1858
    Religious profession: August 15, 1880
    Entered eternal life: November 30, 1897
    Susanna Karls, daughter of Barbara Kirchen and Mathias Karls, was born in Schillingen in the
    Diocese of Trier, Germany on August 21, 1858. She was only four years old when her family
    emigrated and settled in Dane, Wisconsin in August of 1862.
    In the early spring of 1875, Susanna’s sister Anna, already a candidate and teaching in Mineral
    Point, was asked to go to Roxbury to help prepare a namesday celebration for Father Adelbert
    Inama. Afterward she traveled to the motherhouse, taking Susanna with her. That was March 2,
    1875. Susanna was not, however, received into the novitiate until more than three years later.
    Then, on August 6, 1878, she received the Dominican habit and the name Sister Mary Angela of
    the Blessed Sacrament. She pronounced her first vows on August 15, 1880.
    There is no record of Sister Angela’s ministry assignments until 1882, when she was went to
    teach at Saint Mary’s in Oshkosh. This absence of a specific record, however, usually indicates
    that a sister was stationed at the motherhouse. Again there is no record from 1883 until 1886,
    when she was assigned to Saint Andrew’s in Knowles. The 1888–1889 school year found her at
    Holy Name School in Racine, after which she taught at Saint Mary’s in Racine for two years. In
    1891 she was called to teach at Saint Catherine’s
    Academy. After a year there she was sent for the first
    time to Michigan, to Saint Clement’s in Center Line,
    where she taught for two years. In 1894 she was again
    at Holy Name in Racine, and two years later at Saint
    John’s in Little Chute.
    She was thirty-nine years old and just beginning her
    second year at Saint John’s when she died in a Green
    Bay hospital of complications from surgery on
    November 30, 1897. Her sister, by now professed as
    Sister Helen, must have been there, since she would
    later describe the event in some detail. “Father
    Knechtle gave a wonderful sermon, and said she was a
    saint. The funeral was very large, with people coming
    from the surrounding towns. The sodality girls, dressed
    in white, marched in front of the coffin.”
    Sister Angela was the first of three Racine Dominicans
    to be buried in the parish cemetery in Little Chute. The
    simple cross which at first marked her grave
    was eventually replaced by a stone. It can still
    be found there, a bit to the left of the central
    cemetery road in the northwest section. Just
    twelve years later, twenty-nine-year-old Sister
    Antoinette Williamsen would be buried next to
    her.
