NEW YORK (AP) - A nun who co-hosted the 1960s children’s television program “Let’s Talk About God” has died.

The Maryknoll Sisters announced Wednesday that Sister Eileen Brady died Sunday in Ossining, New York. She was 80.

Brady, an educator and social worker, was known on the Archdiocese of New York’s TV program by her religious name, Sister Maureen John.

She held two master’s degrees.

Brady taught at Maryknoll Teachers College in New York and at Maryknoll College in the Philippines.

She also worked as a treatment supervisor at The Children’s Village in Dobbs Ferry, New York, and as a marriage and family therapist.

In 2001, she was sent to East Timor, where she taught holistic health practices.

Her funeral Mass will be held Friday at the Maryknoll Sisters Center in Maryknoll, New York.
