An Excerpt From the SCN Annals

Posted by Kelly McDaniels

September 6, 2023

The annals often have the most complete accounts of the passing of Sisters. Here the annalist of St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington writes of the loss the hospital community felt at the death of Sister Mary Simeonette Savage in 1960. In many cases we would know nothing of the circumstances surrounding Sisters’ deaths if not for the records of the annalists. For some of the earliest Sisters, entries like these are the only information we have on a Sister aside from her permanent record card.

The annalist of St. Joseph Hospital shares her gratitude for the life of Sister Mary Simeonette Savage.
