(Mary Louise Hauck)
October 14, 1950 – April 23, 2024

Sr. Mary Amy Hauck, the daughter of Dr. Richard and Helen Hauck, was born in Lynwood, California in 1950. As a student at St. Helen’s Elementary School and St. Matthias High School, she came to know the Sisters of Notre Dame and felt called to religious life. She explained this call: “I saw that the sisters’ lives were focused on God and out of this single focus, a spirit of joyful simplicity, a love for other people and a zeal for the kingdom of God radiated forth.”

Over the years, Sr. Mary Amy served in various ministries, beginning as an elementary school teacher and administrator and continuing in province leadership. As Provincial Superior, Sr. Mary Amy made a significant impact on many lives by initiating the Associate program which now has more than 100 members who live the SND spirit and mission in their families, parishes, workplaces and other relationships. She was also instrumental in founding the mission in Uganda in collaboration with the Covington province. Her dedication helped to lay the firm foundation for St. Julie Primary Boarding School and Notre Dame Academy in Buseesa, Uganda, as well as other Ugandan ministries.

Regarding the SND community, Sr. Mary Amy was quoted as saying, “The community has been a conduit through which I have received love, acceptance, challenge, guidance and the ability to live my vows with authenticity. Through good times and bad, in joys and sorrows, the community has been the human face of Jesus for me.” In her last years Sister Mary Amy suffered from acute rheumatoid arthritis as well as cancer. She bore her sufferings bravely and trusted in God’s provident care. She was appreciative for everything that was done for her and often expressed her appreciation. On April 23, she surrendered her soul into the hands of her loving God. May she rest in peace…
