I shall miss being in Milwaukee with all of you this week. We were so blessed to have visited with her last month while I was home for my Aunt Ginny’s funeral. Sister Mary Irene came out to California over 30 years ago when I was very pregnant with my son, James. He was born on her birthday! I have always been so proud to be the “other” Mary Deger. God bless!

While going to school at Marquette, Sister Mary would treat me to a home cooked meal and cultural events like a play or dance recital – and always enjoyable, insightful and warm conversation.

Also, many fun memories of Christmas Eve with Sister Mary visiting our family for dinner and Midnight mass – loved listening to her sing carols and witness her deep faith.
