We received some sad news this morning that Sr. Madeleine LeCompte, OSBS, died at the age of 89. Sr. Madeleine was a St. Joseph’s alumnae and long time member of our Board of Directors. She died after a long illness and time in hospice care. Her school days were mostly in the 1930’s, during the Great Depression and Dirty Thirties (Dust Bowl) era. Sr. Madeleine was a nun for over 70 years, and a real inspiration to her fellow Native Americans, whom she spent her life serving. May she rest in God’s peace.
