In Memoriam


Sister Marjorie (Maria Inviolata) Delaplane, OP(1923 – 2014)
In her homily, Sister Patricia Walter said, “If Margie were to have written a book of theology she might have started it by saying, In the beginning was creative sound, a sound which was the eternal three-personed chord, joined by the music of the spheres, and brought into new and astounding harmony through the Word taking flesh in song.” Sister Pat’s image corresponds to Sister Marjorie’s own words describing her belief, “In my life, music comes next to God. Music is such a mirror of God.”

Born in Chicago, the first of seven children of Harry and Margaret (Kleinert) Delaplane, Sister Marjorie began her piano studies at the age of seven. She attended St. Xavier Academy until the Depression when she transferred to St. Columbanus for her remaining grade school years.
