It is with deep sadness we share the news of the passing of Sister Jane McConnell, OSF, who ended her earthly journey on Monday, May 23. As she peacefully passed into the loving arms of her Savior, she was surrounded by the Sisters from her religious order, the Sisters of St. Francis in Oldenburg. Sincere condolences are extended to her family, friends, and fellow associates.

Sister Jane is remembered for her lengthy service to patients, families, and associates as well as her dedication to Mission Integration work at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville and across Indiana. Many of our donors will remember seeing her at the Heritage Open and Cornette Ball. Her ministry will endure for years to come, and we gratefully seek peace and inspiration from her prayer book “Daily We Seek You: Reflections and Prayer for Individuals, Caregivers and Ministry Teams.”

Her vocation of service and wonderful witness calls to mind the fulfillment of these words of the funeral liturgy as she passed from this life: May the angels lead you into paradise;may the martyrs come to welcome you and take you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem. May Sister Jane now rest peacefully in God’s loving embrace.
