In Memoriam

In Memoriam: Remembering our Sisters

Between November 1, 2018 and October 31, 2019, twelve of our sisters died. Their deaths leave a void as we mourn the loss of their physical presence. But we believe in the resurrection of the dead and life eternal! This belief helps us maintain a joyful, meaningful connection to these sisters and all our loved ones who have gone before us. We hold them in our prayer, knowing that they, who are loved eternally by their Creator, continue to love us as well.

As we do each year, we have created In Memoriam, a simple booklet for remembring and reflecting on the gift and grace of our deceased sisters' lives.

If you, too, have a special relationship with one or more of these recently deceased Dominican Sisters of Springfield, we'd like to share our memories with you. To receive your own downloadable PDF copy of In Memoriam complete the form below.

You are also welcome to browse the sisters' obituaries below and share your memories with us.

Thank you for visiting In Memoriam. Here you can rekindle memories of that special sister who touched your life and share your story, if you like.

We know our sisters mean as much to you as they do to us. We are honored to share this special bond with you: The bittersweet experience of loss—a combination of grief and joy.

May you find solace here. Please reach out to us if we can be of help.
