THE STORY OF SISTER JOAN SAWYER.

ONE OF ANTRIM PARISH’S UNSUNG HEROES.

In Lurigancho prison the first reaction to her death was one of total devastation. One of prisoners expressed his reaction in a letter:
“Minutes before Sister Juanita was taken hostage I was speaking to her when she came with a packet sent in with her by my mother. I can still see her eyes which reached to eternity. Her love, pure and gentle, which reflected her great love for people. Her spirit of kindness and sacrifice towards us prisoners will be my most precious memory.” Julio
