Sister Stella Marie Karls, CSA, is a Sister of the Congregation of Saint Agnes in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. She is a passionate, loving, open, and honest individual. Born in Waunakee, Wisconsin, she has been a member of the Sisters of St. Agnes for sixty years, after receiving a true calling from God at the age of 22. She ministered as a teacher for 37 years; eighteen of which she taught first grade, and absolutely adored working with the children and watching them grow. While growing up on a farm with twelve siblings, her family was very supportive and approving of her decision to become a nun. In her free time she appreciates working with the elderly, having conversations with others based on faith and religion, and spending time with family members and friends; but most of all she enjoys making a difference in the lives of others, acting justly, loving tenderly, and walking humbly with God!
