Friends describe Sister Jean as fiercely determined, with a laser focus on her commitment to Christ. Her manner of speaking was truthful and direct, while at the same time, gracious and sensitive. And she was a person who got things done wherever she was. Whether providing clean water and nutrition for the poor or initiating the composting at Marywood, Sister Jean saw what was needed and took action to make it happen – quietly and effectively.

“She has taught me what a heart of a contemplative is all about,” recalled one friend, “it is to have the world always in mind, to have compassion with those on the margins, and to be one with them.” Sister Jean lived Micah’s words to walk humbly and simply, to act justly and love tenderly.
