Residents and staff at Alexis Manor, where Sister Eileen most recently served as a Manager, describe her presence as gentle and caring – always patient and kind.
Prior to her 25-year ministry at Alexis Manor, Sister Eileen served more than 40 years – as teacher, principal, or consultant – at 11 schools in the dioceses of Pittsburgh, Greensburg and Columbus, OH. Known for her excellent administrative skills, Sister Eileen was principal at St. Catherine in Beechview (1974-80, 1983-85), St. Angela Merici in White Oak (1980-83), St. Bernard in Indiana, PA (1958-64), St. Pius X in Reynoldsburg, OH (1966-72), and Mount Gallitzin Academy in Baden (1964-66).
Characterized as a “great listener” and “people-person,” Sister Eileen continues to hear from former students who credit her for a strong foundation of faith and education. She herself has grown in faith with daily prayer and Mass, and in knowledge with “harder-the-better” crossword puzzles.
A resident of Villa St. Joseph, Sister Eileen maintains a positive outlook and expresses gratitude for 75 years as a Sister of St. Joseph during this Jubilee Year of Mercy.
