Remembering Sister M. Magdalene Schmitt, OSF

schmitt_sr_magdalene_webSister Magdalene’s life began September 26, 1928, in Leonore, Illinois. Her loving parents, Frances Frings Schmitt and Albert Schmitt, brought their daughter into a family which would soon number six children: three daughters ‐ Eleanore, Elaine and Elizabeth Marie (Sister Magdalene) ‐ all now deceased; three sons ‐ Karl and Wiemar, also deceased, and one son still living ‐ Albert Eugene.

Elizabeth Marie, or Betty, as Sister Magdalene was called as a child, also had a great aunt in this Congregation as well as two cousins: Sisters Ottilia Schmitt, Lucita Mueller and Jovita Mizicko respectively. They too have preceded Sister Magdalene in death.
