    Congratulations Sister Loraine. I remember your sister, Sister Antonella from Holy Cross. She was the principal and taught my 4th grade class 1/2 days. I can see the resemblance in your eyes. She was a great teacher/principal, as I'm sure you were.

    Dear Sr Lorraine,
    God bless you! I’m the ex-Dominican who taught 3rd grade at Holy Redeemer, Burton, f/ a short time in the 60’s.

    Hi Sister Lorraine,
    Just happened to run across your 75th Anniversary Celebration on my Smart Phone in 2017. Congratulations on your achievement and thanks for all of the knowledge and assistance you supported us with at St. Vincent’s in Elkhart. You were a great teacher and I always remembered you through my whole life as an important teacher to have had in the classroom. Last I remember where you were was St. Thomas and I was a counselor at Northside across the street. Hope you’re still doing fine in the ministry of prayer. I did get my MA at ND in Counseling and Guidance for my own benefit I guess. God Bless.
