    God bless, Sr. Mary Elizabeth. I knew her as a quiet dedicated worker for the Belleville Ursulines. She was a model of true service and love of God.

    “God love her”, as my mother would often say.’Sr. Mary Elizabeth was a humble servant; always helping others without any fanfare. Her body will lie to rest on the hill at Maplemount, but I know her soul soared straight to her place in heaven. God rest her soul.
