Oak Tree Planted in Memory of OSF Sister

Posted on: August 19th, 2016 by Jean Merry

Members of the Land Use Committee worked with the family of the late Sr. Mary Francis Heimann to plant an oak tree in her memory. Pictured with Sr. Mary Francis’ sister, Eloise Heimann (seated in the wheelchair), are nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, who told stories about the OSF Sister and her dedication to the environment. The red oak was planted in the newly developed urban forest on the Motherhouse grounds – a development in which Sr. Mary Francis was deeply involved, making many of the tree and shrub selections for the area.20160808_112342 20160808_114531
