Sister Elizabeth

Yvonne Murray Campbell was born on September 2, 1927 in the English Hospital of Mexico City. She was the daughter of Henry Murray Campbell and Elisabeth Day. She had two brothers, Henry and Colin, and one sister, Virginia. Yvonne’s name was changed to Sr. Elizabeth when she began life as a nun.

Sr. Elizabeth worked as a religious teacher in various female Catholic institutions throughout Mexico. After teaching for 30 years in the bilingual secretaries department and in high schools, Fr. Wasson asked Yvonne to come look after her mother Elisabeth, since she was ill, and work with him.

Her superiors authorized Sr. Elizabeth to carry out this ministry. At NPH Mexico, she worked in the school at Miacatlán and was especially dedicated to organizing and preparing the sacramental catechesis of all children of the NPH family. "Being with the young people, at the ex-hacienda San Salvador in Miacatlán, I discovered the root and growth of my spiritual life. It was with those who are thirsty and hungry to learn," Sr. Elizabeth tells in the biography My Story.

Sr. Elizabeth worked at NPH Mexico with love and dedication for 36 years, and until the day of her passing on December 8, 2014, at the age of 87.

Sr. Elizabeth wrote the book "Encuentro con mi Hermano" (Encounter with my Brother) as a testimony of gratitude to NPH.
