Sr. Wiona Engel
I was born in Luckenbach, Texas, the youngest of six children born to Armin and Franciska Engel. I grew up on a farm where we raised mainly tomatoes and squash for a living. I attended a two room public elementary school my first seven years and 8th grade through 12th grade in St. Mary’s Catholic School, Fredericksburg, Texas from where I graduated as Valedictorian of my class in 1962.

Writing a composition was never one of my favorite tasks at school. In Primary School I remember once getting “go maith” and what a joy. I still can see those two words written in red in my mind’s eye. So to get cracking I’ll try to share the story of my vocation.
