Sister Elizabeth Mary Hagmaier, SND

August 14, 2015

Notre Dame Sister Elizabeth Mary Hagmaier, a Sister of Notre Dame for 68 years, died July 9.

Born in San Francisco, Sister Elizabeth graduated from Notre Dame Academy in Alameda and earned a graduate degree as well as elementary and secondary teaching credentials from the University of San Francisco.

For 20 years, Sister Elizabeth served as teacher and counselor at Notre Dame/St. Joseph Notre Dame High School in Alameda where she enjoyed teaching children of some of her former classmates.

Sister Elizabeth served as director of religious education at Treasure Island Naval Base and became a very familiar face and welcomed colleague at the archdiocesan Pastoral Center when she assisted in the Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs Office.

“She was gentle and compassionate; she loved her own family and her Notre Dame community and was always mindful of issues affecting the larger world community,” the Notre Dame Sisters said.

Survivors include a sister-in-law Gina and nieces and nephews. A funeral Mass was celebrated July 30 at Notre Dame Province Center in Belmont with interment at Holy Cross Cemetery, Colma.

Memorial contributions may be made to Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur, 1520 Ralston Ave., Belmont 94002.
