    I didn’t know any of the sisters in Belvedere but my great aunts were close with them. They have all been gone after dying at quite advanced ages in the seventies. My great aunts were Alice and Agnes Curran and their sister Florence Brady. You may have helped care for them as they all were patients at the hospital.

    My maternal Aunt, Sr. Pat McLennon is part of the Kansas community today. I remember when she and other sisters would come “home” to Chicago and would spend some time with the few sisters still serving in Belvedere.

    I am the great grandaughter of Xavier Muths. I know he settled in the Tipton Ks area around 1875 and had some connections with the Sisters of Joseph. Any help you can give on the Muths Family would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Denise (Muths) Palacio

    I am looking for the Sisters who were at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Belvidere, Illinois. Sister Mary Giles, Sister Marie Bernadette, are two with whom I worked.

    What can you tell me about my great aunt Sister Angelita Boden who passed away sometime back after being a nun for over 50 years there? Her last remaining sister (Helena Ubelaker) the youngest passed away this past year spring. Now that I am thinking more, Sister passed away about the same time as John Paul II did in 2004. I remember coming to her funeral right before I lost my son John Patrick in May from a miscarriage.

    I found the address of the cemetery where your aunt Sr. McConn, it’s located on BillionGraves.com.
    Just do a general search on the McConn name and her name should be one of the first ones to show up !
    The address of the cemetery is listed there.
    Both findagrave an BillionGraves show a photo of the plaque in remembrance of her.
    Best wishes in your search !

    Please help. My Auntie Mina McConn, better known as Sr Myra Joseph was a teaching nun in Concordia since about 1918. I would like to know where she is buried. Thank you.

    I grew up in Salina (Sacred Heart Grade, Jr & High School) am temporarily working in Napa, CA @ St Joseph Queen of the Valley Hosp. Is this the same order as you? Did you start in France? The habit looks identical. My regards to Sr Judy Stevens & Sr Agnes de Sales is forever in my heart. Thanks & God bless you.
