“Supertradmum” (Marie Dean): R.I.P.

Dear readers,

I was informed today that a long-time reader and commentator here,  with the handle “Supertradmum” has died.  I had posted about her illness a while back.  She died in St Joseph’s Hospice, London, this morning.

In your goodness please remember to pray for the soul of Marie Bernard Miller Dean (Supertradmum).

She leaves a son behind. Please, too, remember him in your prayers.

From her old version blog (newer here):

    I just thought of her yesterday, and hoped for an update. We knew she wasn’t well. Somehow it feels like I knew her, there’s a feeling of real loss. It really is a community, I’m not trying to be hokey, but we’re in a battle zone together. Supertradmum, Marie, was a sister in Christ, someone who loved God and loved the church and the faith. I hope we meet someday in heaven, please God. I profited from her words many times. Surely she goes out of a dark world and into a better one.
    Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul rest in peace, amen. And please God, comfort her poor son, amen.
    Marie Dean, you’ll be missed.

  19. jaykay says:

    Thank you for letting us know, Father. She is well remembered by many of us here. I’ll be at the sung evening Mass in Westminster Cathedral tomorrow, as it happens, and will especially remember her. Requiescat in pace.

  20. veritas vincit says:

    Very sorry to hear about her. It seems she posted not all that long ago.

    May she and all the faithful departed, by the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  21. iPadre says:

    Prayers of her and her family.

    Requiescat in pace!

  22. mulieribus says:

    Thank you for posting about Marie’s death. She was a special lady. I daily adopt a soul who is to die that day, and offer my Holy Communion for them. I wondered who it might be today when I lit a candle for that soul. I surely hope it was Marie. I loved her blog. She was very detached from earthly things, except her dear son Edmund. Prayers for his consolation and for the repose of her soul. I will have the Holy Mass offered for her. Rest In Peace, dear Marie. Pray for us, if you have reached the gates of Heaven and we will pray for you in case you aren’t quite there.

    I usually read her comments and she was a great contributor here …

    May her soul, and the souls of all the faithful departed, through the Mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.

  24. catholiccomelately says:

    May she rest in peace, in the arms of her Lord.

  25. Jacob says:

    This is sad news indeed. She and I grew up in the same areas at different times, so while I know her only through her comments here and elsewhere and through a few email exchanges, I felt a special affinity for her and when she would share stories of our home state.

    Requiescat in pace.

  26. KateriK says:

    Salve, Pater! Thank you for letting us know. I always enjoyed reading her comments and insights. Such a grand Catholic lady. I will pray the Office of the Dead for her tonight and also tomorrow. Requiescat in pace!

  27. Angela says:

    I ‘met’ Marie through her comments on this blog. She became a good friend. May God have mercy on her soul and may she rest in peace. Prayers too for her son.

  28. MitisVis says:

    May Our Blessed Mother aid and assist Marie and her family at this moment. And may we meet her again in the future. I was so impressed with her concern with the young Catholics.

    Requiescat in pace

    TY Father for informing us

    Thanks, Father.

    May Marie Rest In Peace.

    Thank you Fr Z.

    I will remember Marie and family in my prayers. May she rest in peace.

  31. PostCatholic says:

    I am sad to hear that. She had a quick mind and was very determined. I am sure she leaves behind many happy memories for her family to treasure.

  32. RosaryRose says:

    God rest her soul! Her comments were solid strength and reason. I am praying for her soul and all the souls in Purgatory, we need them in Heaven to intercede for us.
    Praying for her son. He is in seminary, isn’t he?

  33. CasaSanBruno says:

    I remembered Marie in my Low Mass. Requiescat in pace.

    I was saddened to hear this. May she rest in peace. I enjoyed reading her comments and blogs. She had a lot of wisdom. Prayers for her family.

  37. Fr_Sotelo says:

    I will remember Supertradmum at the altar. She has fought the good fight; she has run the race; she has kept the Faith. All the while, she urged us on in battle. God grant her to pass to the Church Triumphant.

  38. VexillaRegis says:

    I’m so sorry, I have been praying for Supertradmom and her son.

    In paradisum deducant te Angeli; in tuo adventu suscipiant te martyres, et perducant te in civitatem sanctam Jerusalem. Chorus angelorum te suscipiat, et cum Lazaro quondam paupere æternam habeas requiem.

    Requiescat in pace.

    Vexilla Regis

  39. Johann says:

    Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine O. Et lux perpetua luceat ei. Per Christum Dominum nostrum. Amen.

  40. Very sad news, thank you for letting us know, Father. Gosh, back awhile, Supertradmum commented a lot.
    May she rest in peace, may God comfort her son and those she leaves behind.
