Earlier this month, prayers were requested from the alumnae for Sister Jean Marie Deleery, OSU, who served in the elementary school and in other positions for many years in the 1970s through the 2000s.  I’m sorry to announce that she passed away soon after I sent the e-mail.  Her services were held in the Ursuline Convent Chapel in Alton, Illinois on Thursday, September 23.  She was buried at St. Patrick’s Cemetery in Godfrey, Illinois.  We ask that you continue your prayers for the repose of her soul.

Sr. Jean Marie Deleery RIP

Also, last month, we asked that alumnae keep in their prayers Sister Ruth Marie Call, OSU.  She had taken a fall in early August and broke her hip.  Sadly, we were all shocked to learn that Sr. Ruth passed away very early Saturday morning.  Her services will be held this Friday, October 1, in the Ursuline Convent Chapel in Alton, Illinois.  There will be a brief wake beginning at 9:30 a.m.  Liturgy will begin at 10:30 a.m.  Sr. Ruth requested to be buried in Alton, Illinois.  Please keep her in your prayers.

Sr. Ruth Marie Call RIP

Thank you,
