Ontario crash claims 2 Madonna House members

The Madonna House community is in shock following the death of two of its members in a highway accident last weekend. Joan Bryant and Marg Stobie died when their car struck a tree Sunday, Jan. 23, near Peterborough, Ont.

Marian Moody, the archivist at Madonna House Apostolate where both women lived, said "There's a reason for everything and that is a consolation, actually. It doesn't take away the shock or the pain or the loss. But in faith we know they're with God and it was their time, I guess."


  1. Only God knows the reason for this. My prayers go out to their parents and
    all the members of Madonna House.

  2. God Bless Joan, Marg, and all the Madonna House Apostolate.
