Ursuline Sister Mary Elizabeth Krampe celebrated her 100th birthday June 21, 2018, surrounded by family members and many Ursuline Sisters who gathered in the Rainbow Room at Mount Saint Joseph.
Sister Mary Elizabeth was born in the tiny community of Rome, Ky., not too far from Maple Mount. When she was 40 years old, she decided to enter the Ursuline Sisters of Belleville, Ill., more than three hours away, because she wanted a smaller community. When the Belleville community merged with Mount Saint Joseph in 2005, Sister Mary Elizabeth came back to Daviess County. She is celebrating her 60th jubilee this year as an Ursuline Sister.
Here are some pictures from her birthday party.
