Wisconsin Public Radio has been broadcasting a series of profile stories about people who have died from COVID-19, talking with loved ones about who the person was and what their legacy is.
In December, the WPR networks broadcast interviews that Wisconsin Life host and producer Maureen McCollum conducted with Sister Mary Diez, president of our international congregation, and Sister Kathleen O’Brien, U.S. Provincial Coordinator.
The radio interview and online feature article gave brief glimpses into the lives of each of the sisters from our congregation and the School Sisters of Notre Dame who died earlier this year at Our Lady of the Angels Convent in Greenfield. The profiles included details and remembrances about their lives as teachers, artists, cooks, and healthcare workers spanning many decades.
You can read the online article on the WPR website and hear the radio interview at this audio link.
