Kathleen Ellen Nelson was born in Grand Rapids, Michigan, on August 20th of 1945. Growing up in Wyoming Park, she was the third of four children born to Frances and Arnold Nelson. Older siblings Peggy and John preceded her and a younger brother, Eric, was born just nineteen months after her. Kathy’s first call to religious life came as early as the eighth grade, when she became an aspirant with the School Sisters of Notre Dame in Mequon, Wisconsin. Eventually, it was decided that she needed to return home to finish her high school education, graduating from Mt. Mercy High School in 1964.

The following summer, she met the man of her dreams, saying “as soon as I saw this one man, I knew we would marry.”

“When I die God, we have to talk.” We can rest assured that Sister Kathy is having that talk with God, whose love she never doubted, but for whom she has many questions about her life of unspeakable sorrow and immense joy.”
