When one Sister remarked at her calmness in hearing the difficult news of inoperable, aggressive cancer, Sr. Lucianne “Lu” replied, “Well, there is nothing I can do about it, so I guess my part is to accept it.” Reflecting on her favorite artistic medium, that of stone carving, she wrote “the stone’s colors and lines emerge near the end.” Trust and acceptance of God’s abiding love were a hallmark of her life of faith. Once more thinking about her experience in shaping stone, she remarked, “the finished, polished work carries my spirit way beyond me.”

We who knew and loved Sister Lucianne are grateful for her lively spirit, her faith-filled life, which is now beyond us in body, yet ever present in our hearts.
