Sister Mary Bernard Bowers

August 3, 1920 - April 18, 2007   |   Passed On

Among her special memories was a wild ride shared with Sister Mary Cecilia and a good Monsignor just learning to drive, giving another Monsignor’s dog a very large piece of chewy, caramel candy to keep his mouth occupied in order to protect her Christmas ornaments, walking to the Ursuline Academy Junior College from Sacred Heart Convent in thirty degree below zero weather with only a black shawl for warmth, and a highlight to be sure was her Marian year trip to Europe in 1988.

Sister Maurine Sofranko

October 23, 1910 - March 26, 2006   |   Passed On

Sister was a woman of many talents not the least of which was gardener and horticulturalist. She often spoke of the miniature purple iris that she brought from her mother's garden. How appropriate for Sister Maurine to begin her new life in springtime as everything around us is coming to life. The chirping birds are a reminder of how vigilant she was in feeding them and how adamant she was in keeping the squirrels away even to the point of greasing the pole to the birdfeeder so the squirrels could not climb it.

I believe, as did Carl Jung, that people are basically good, given the right environment, they are naturally inclined towards wholeness. I also believe, as research has shown, that it is the therapeutic relationship, over and above any particular mode of treatment, that determines the extent to which a person will "get well." And I am a relationship builder.

Sister Martha Mary Conrad

January 17, 1940 - May 8, 2016   |   Passed On

It was in Somerset, Kentucky, in the Lexington Diocese, that she felt the Holy Spirit calling her. She must have heard well as she stayed there for almost thirty-five years. While getting acquainted with St. Mildred’s parish there, she soon heard about the needs of the community. With the help of others, including churches, they founded St. Mildred’s Outreach of which she became the Director. The range of needs was great from utilities, to food, clothing, shelter, medications, even to advocating for clean community water supplies. Whenever needed, such as sudden loss of a job or of a home to fire, Sr. Marty’s service included counseling and spiritual support. She left behind “God’s Food Pantry”, a non-profit organization that serves the entire Pulaski county area, and the Outreach Center now managed by experienced volunteers.

Sister Mary Frances Comito

April 6, 1919 - November 11, 2007   |   Passed On

`Frannie Lou` as she was affectionately known to her sister’s in religion, is remembered by those who lived with her as a very even-tempered, positive person who was particularly kind and generous to those less fortunate whether in learning ability or in material goods. Always devoted to her family, visiting became easier when she got her little car. The sisters could always count on her to give them a lift to wherever they needed to go.
