    Sister Leo Marie was very professional as a teacher when I attended SMA and kind and compassionate as a friend when I taught there and when my Mom (Hattie Goodman) lived at Juniper. I will consider her one of my Angels sitting with Jesus.

    It was an honor to work with Sr. Leo Marie for many years at St. Mary’s Academy and at Cardinal Stritch University. She was the most kind and caring person & a role model for us all in how she lived the Franciscan values. A Vikings and Twins fan through and through, I have always missed our morning discussions about the games. You will be missed by so many.
