Goodbye Sr Geraldine

We started our New Year's eve saying goodbye to Sister Geraldine, who after 90 years of life ad 71 years of religious life decided not to wait for 2011. Her funeral was a lovely and fitting send off for this woman of deep faith and simple love of God and God's people.

During the year I lived at St Mary on the lake, I sat behind Sr Geraldine in the Chapel. She always prayed for the President and Congress. Faithfully each day. She also kept up to date on world events. I am sure she is now an even stronger advocate for peace and justice now that she is in heaven.
