The Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, along with the Avila Institute of Gerontology, honored two individuals with the Flos Carmeli award for their excellence and dedication to the mission of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm., Foundress of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm. “Flos Carmeli,” meaning “Flower of Carmel,” is an award that is given to individuals chosen for their commitment and enthusiasm for living out and spreading the Carmelite mission. The 2018 Flos Carmeli celebration took place on March 6 at St. Teresa’s Motherhouse in Germantown, NY.

Recipients, Wayne Schuberth of Carmel Terrace in Framingham, MA and Dianne Kloeker of St. Margaret Hall in Cincinnati, OH, received the award for Shared Commitment.

Wayne Schuberth

Mr. Wayne Schuberth has given thirty-five years of dedicated service to Carmel Terrace and St. Patrick’s Manor in various positions, notably the Director of Maintenance, Environmental and Security Services. Mr. Wayne Schuberth goes above and beyond duty to foster community among his coworkers and the residents for whom he cares. His commitment to achieving excellent standards is matched by his willingness to help his workmates in any capacity needed to create a true home for the residents. 

His dedication to care, safety, dignity and comfort for the residents is an inspiration to all who know him. He has earned high positions of trust with the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm and colleagues through his passion for learning , sharing , and living out the Carmelite values for over three decades. He maintains his professional, caring attitude even in moments of difficulty and stress. He does everything he can to see that every resident feels at home, and his love for them has resulted in strong relationships spanning many years. The labor and accomplishments of Mr. Wayne Schuberth are the lived expression of the charism of Mother M. Angeline Teresa, and a true manifestation of the philosophy of care of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, which he lives by word and example. In presenting this award, we honor Mr. Wayne Schuberth for his years of generous and outstanding service. We honor Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm., upon whose inspiration this generous service has been built. We honor the aged who have been the fount of motivation for both Mr. Wayne Schuberth and Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm.

Mrs. Dianne Kloeker is an inspiration to her coworkers by her compassion, integrity, and commitment to the Carmelite Mission.

Her positive attitude and dedication to providing outstanding palliative care make a genuine impact in the lives of the residents and their families. Her effusive joy in serving the residents is matched by her technical proficiency in her job. She encourages her team members to share “mission moments” and leads the effort to respect each resident’s cultural traditions, thereby creating a stronger team dynamic. The labor and accomplishments of Mrs. Dianne Kloeker are the lived expression of the charism of Venerable Mary Angeline Teresa McCrory, O.Carm., and a true manifestation of the philosophy of care of the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm, which she lives by word and example.
