OBLATE OF THE CONGREGATION
OF THE MOST HOL Y REDEEMER


6 cwc"6 6A

















Jean Joseph Sibilly was born on the French island of St. Bar-
thelemy on January 5, 1889. Trained in agriculture and animal
husbandry on Guadeloupe, he subsequently immigrated to
St. Thomas in 1912.



Joseph was married to Zulma Elizabeth Querrard on July 3,
1916. This union was blessed with seven children. Completing
the family composition are his sister Florestine Berry, 32
grandchildren, and 47 great grandchildren.



In 1967, Mr. Sibilly was honored in Rome when he was made
an Oblate of the Congregation of the Most Holy Redeemer.



Among the legacies of this beloved community leader are the
construction of Sts. Peter and Paul High School, the roadway
system of the northside, the donation of land for the Mafolie
Chapel, the cemetery, and for an elementary school later
named in his honor.



"May his life serve as an inspiration to others."
