Today I heard the news that a vital part of our community is gone. Sue O’Brien passed away last week of heart failure. When her own heart was failing she continued to serve and lift others. For many years Sue was Sister John’s right hand. She helped Sister John feed this community. When Sister John was weak…Sue came along beside her and continued the mission and vision that Sister John had for those in need. She helped move the food being distributed out of the trunk of Sister John’s car to an actual Food Pantry that serves 43 families at this time.
When Sister John was failing, Sue stepped up to carry on caring for the community. Sue became an Associate of the Sisters of the Holy Name of Jesus and Mary to continue the work that the order helps support. Sue’s love for the Sisters was unfailing. She will be truly missed in their community and ours.
