Sister Madeleine's Sisters

resize text:

Sister Madeleine ‘38, about whom our Home Ec’ers shared many stories, was one of five daughters from the same family who entered religious life, and also a twin. When the Daughters of Charity still wore the traditional habits, Sister Madeleine and Sister Elaine ‘39, her twin, used to switch places and cause confusion. Sister Elaine and another sibling, Sr. Jean Marie ’49, recently passed away within one day of each other. Sisters Elaine and Jean Marie resided together at St. Louise House, Menands, N.Y. for over seven years. Learn more about them in this article from the Albany Times-Union: Sisters Were Sisters, Inseparable to the End.
