In Memoriam: Sister Rosemarie Bittermann, SC
by Communications Director | Mar 7, 2019 

Sister’s sense of humor, generous heart, and love of community life are memories for those with whom she lived.

Sister Rosemarie Bittermann (Sister Marie Anthony) was born August 4, 1922, in Saugerties, New York, one of six daughters and one son of Anthony and Catherine Mundus Bittermann. She attended Saint Mary of the Snow Elementary School and Saugerties High School. After graduation, Rosemarie went to New York State College of Teachers in Albany, later SUNY Albany, for one year before entering the Sisters of Charity of New York September 6, 1941. Sister earned a BS in Spanish from the College of Mount Saint Vincent and an MA in Education from Manhattan College. She later received NYS teaching certification for N – Grade 6 and Spanish Grades 7 – 9.

Sister Rosemarie spent close to sixty years in the schools of the Archdiocese of New York, with all but one year in elementary education. She taught at the Academy of Mount Saint Vincent, Bronx; Holy Cross Academy, Manhattan; Seton Academy, Yonkers; and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Scarsdale. In 1954 she was missioned to Saint Mary of the Snow, Saugerties, her alma mater, where she taught for six years. Sister Rosemarie then returned to Manhattan to teach at Our Lady of Mount Carmel and Saint Francis Xavier. In 1968, Sister returned to the Bronx to serve at Saint Barnabas and Nativity of Our Blessed Lady. From there Sister Rosemarie went to Saint Joseph School, Florida, N.Y., where she
taught for the next thirteen years. In 1994, Sister volunteered at Saint Peter, Yonkers, for the next eight years, providing various services for the children and school administration. In 2007, Sister retired to
Saint Patrick Villa, Nanuet, but with declining health, she joined the sisters at Convent of Mary the Queen in Yonkers. In 2014, she was among the first group of sisters to form a retirement community at what is known today as Kittay Senior Apartments in the Bronx. It is here that she died Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019.

Always kind and compassionate, Sister Rosemarie will be remembered by the many students she taught, as well as their parents and families. Sister’s sense of humor, generous heart, and love of community life are memories for those with whom she lived. She will also be remembered for her hobbies of solving jigsaw puzzles and crocheting afghans.

Sister Rosemarie was a dedicated Sister of Charity who served God with humility, simplicity and charity. We rejoice with her now as she is welcomed into the loving arms of our God whom she served so long and so well. Rest in eternal peace, Sister Rosemarie.

I remember Sister Anthony at Holy Cross Academy. She was a lovely, kind and loving person, always willing to be of assistance to those in need. I have thought of her often over the years, since, with happy memories. She was truly a Sister of Charity to her fingertips.

May she rest in peace and joy, in the arms of Jesus, her Spouse.

I suspect you engineers never ran into John at Manhattan but he also went to Good Shepherd, in your class.  I have to tell you he was quite a guy. Weird in some ways but an honest to God human being who made things better for us all in the long run. A sad addition to the class of ’68 loss column.

William Wheeler, New York Mass Transit Visionary, Dies at 69
Posted 5:11 p.m. yesterday
By Sam Roberts, New York Times

*** begin quote ***

William M. Wheeler, who as a New York mass transit official oversaw the strategic planning that inaugurated the MetroCard, belatedly spawned the first phase of the Second Avenue subway and dared, by recommending countdown clocks, to introduce the presumption that subways and buses would arrive punctually, died Saturday at his home in Tarrytown, New York. He was 69.

The cause was coronary artery disease, which had previously been undetected, his son, William Wheeler III, said

As the Metropolitan Transportation Authority’s deputy director of strategic planning from 1986 to 1992, director of planning and development for the next decade and, since 2002, director of special project development and planning, Wheeler did not have much of a public profile, but he was persuasive privately within the agency and before its board.

*** and ***

“It’s hard,” he told streetsblognyc in 2013. “The only thing more important than owning a gun in the United States is having a parking spot.”

*** and ***

William Moyer Wheeler Jr. was born Sept. 24, 1949, in Braintree, Massachusetts. His father was an engineer for a manufacturing company. His mother, Betty Jane Reid, was a teacher.

After graduating from Haddon Heights High School in New Jersey, he received a bachelor’s degree in political science from Marietta College in Ohio, a master’s in public administration specializing in urban affairs from American University in Washington, and a master of science degree from Manhattan College School of Engineering in the Bronx.

Before joining the MTA, he was a transportation planner for the city of Yonkers and director of planning for the Westchester transportation department. Since 1983, he had also directed the central staff of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Council.

In 1972, he married Diane Grisanti. She died in 2013. In addition to his son, he is survived by his daughter, Joanna Marie Wheeler; his mother; a brother, Jon Wheeler; and a sister, Wendy Wheeler.
