In Memoriam


Bety Lou Myers(1932-2015)

Born on May 9, 1932, in Lansing, Michigan, Sister Betty Lou Myers was the first of three children born to Frederick and Lucille (Koehler) Myers. Both parents traced their ancestry to Germany. They were married in Bowling Green, Ohio. 

Sister Betty was educated at Resurrection and St. Mary Schools in Lansing.  Because of the fierce rivalry between these two schools, it seemed strange that she attended both schools. In her biography, she explained that one of the two religious sisters on her mother’s side of the family was a member of the Sisters of Charity from Cincinnati who staffed St. Mary School.

Maureen Driscoll(1933-2015)

Sister Maureen Driscoll was born in 1933 in Port Angeles, Washington, between the hours of midnight (July 10) and 1:00 a.m. (July 11). Her parents, John and Martha (Moore) Driscoll, had the option of choosing which date to put on her birth certificate and they chose July 10 because it was the Feast of the Seven Servite Founders. According to Sister Maureen, her father thought having seven saints on your birthday was better than only having the one listed for the next day.
