Our Sister Cabrini Harasimowicz, O.S.F. (90) died on Tuesday, January 27, 2015, at 9:40 p.m. here at St. Francis Convent.
Sister Cabrini, the former Marcella Harasimowicz, was born in Chicago, IL, on April 5, 1924, the daughter of John and Dominika (Jablonski) Harasimowicz. She entered our Congregation on September 8, 1945 and professed her religious vows on June 13, 1948.
She served in the Accounting Department at hospitals in Illinois, Wisconsin, and Missouri. She also served our Community as Provincial Treasurer from 1976-88 and as an Assistant Provincial Treasurer from 1988-99. In 1999, Sister Cabrini retired from active duty and served as a volunteer in the assisted living and infirmary areas of St. Francis Convent until 2009. From 1999 until shortly before her death, Sister Cabrini faithfully served in a ministry of prayer and adoration here at St. Francis Convent.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by six sisters: Anna Swartz, Sophie Deguzman, Helen Deangelo, Marie Rodgers, Sister M. Clarette Harasimowicz, O.S.F., and Genevieve McClellan; and three brothers: Stanley, Alphonse, and Albin Harasimowicz, as well as a nephew, Alan Harasimowicz.
She is survived by several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, as well as her Franciscan Sisters with whom she shared her life for almost 70 years.
