In Memoriam

Sister Alice Marie Lacina, OP

Sister Alice Marie Lacina, OP (1925 – 2014)
Sister Alice Marie Lacina was a humble, unassuming woman. Yet, as many Sisters said, she was also a very generous, hospitable person. Sister Maria Goretti Browne said at the wake, “We are grateful to the Lacina family . . . for giving us Alice, this quiet, reserved, kind, caring, humble person.” It is clear that Sister Alice Marie was loved, and she will be missed.

On January 2, 1925, in Owosso, Michigan, a daughter was born to Albert and Frances (Sheda) Lacina and was baptized Alice Helen. She was the ninth of their eleven children: eight girls (Mary, Frances, Sophie, Anne, Blanche, Agnes, Alice, and Helen) and three boys (Albert, Robert, and John). She wrote that she didn’t know much about her three oldest siblings, since by the time she entered the family they were married and had left their father’s house.

I am pretty sure this sister cared for a family member of mine, many years ago when my brother Chooch was studying to be a Rabby. Is this sister in any way related to the infamous Sister Mary El''Ephant? I have not run into her in way too long, perhaps you could put me in touch with her once again? I would graciously appreciate your efforts.
