Sister M. Emiline Tuma
Sister M. Emiline Tuma (Emma Tuma), School Sister of Notre Dame, died at the age of 93, on Saturday evening, Aug. 23, at Good Counsel Convent, in Mankato.

She taught school in Minnesota, and in North and South Dakota, for almost 50 years, primarily in the primary grades. Following her years in the classrooms, she did some tutoring, before retiring at Good Counsel, in 1988.
