About Sister Joan Companick

Sister Joan Companick was born and educated in Trenton, New Jersey. A natural athlete, she played every sport open to girls in the 1950’s while maintaining a high academic record at Cathedral High School, Trenton.

In 1953 she entered the Sisters of Mercy in North Plainfield and was assigned to teach in grammar schools in Collingswood and later Atlantic City. She was sent to Phillipsburg Catholic High School in 1965 where she returned to sports as a basketball coach.

In 1953 she entered the Sisters of Mercy in North Plainfield and was assigned to teach in grammar schools in Collingswood and later Atlantic City. She was sent to Phillipsburg Catholic High School in 1965 where she returned to sports as a basketball coach. In 1968 Sister was assigned to Camden Catholic High School. Sister turned to officiating basketball, hockey, softball and lacrosse.

Sister Joan saw a need for organized sports programs for students of grammar school age and in CYO groups. She worked tirelessly to ensure that girls in all levels were given opportunities and recognition for their successes.

 

In 1981 Sister Joan began a battle with cancer. Forced to give up teaching for a year, she returned as Guidance Counselor at Holy Cross High School in 1983. With characteristic enthusiasm and remarkable energy, she quickly got involved in all aspects of the school, directly supporting, encouraging and being a friend to all. Sister became Guidance Director in 1984.

 

Her death in 1986 cut short a life of dedicated service, but she is remembered by all who were privileged to know her and know about her.

The Sister Joan Companick Scholarship was founded by her brother in 1989, to honor his sister whom he loved dearly. Sadly, Robert passed away in March 2017, but his support for his sister and for Catholic education lives on.
