It was destined for me to meet,you, work for you, learn so much from you, and then grow to love you so much!❤️ It was a privilege and an honor to have had you in my life !❤️ There will never be another Sister Jeanette Murray!❤️ R.I.P. my dear friend!🙏🏾

I thank God everyday that you where part of my life. I miss you so much. I would not be the person I am today without you!!!

I think of her every day. I know that she is watching over me. I miss her so so much!! She is what keeps me going everyday and the students and young adults. I truly love the work I do.

A good woman!

Thank you Benedictine for sharing your message .......... on a plaque outside an old hospital close to here was the inscription 'to live in the hearts of those you leave behind, is not to die' ......remembering with great fondness my many memories of Sr. Jeannette.....

Beautiful inside and out! Totally agree with you Mary Jo.. "The best of the best"

God bless Sister

Always remember my arrival to the Benedictine school late in the evening and Sister Jeannette coming to the back door in her pajamas. She opened the door and said “welcome to Benedictine” walking through the doors changed my life. I would not be doing the work I do today without working at the school and meeting her. I am so blessed to have known her and work with her at the school.

Sister you are in the hearts of everyone you touched.

She was a wonderful woman, natural leader and did so much for the school.

🙏♥️

I miss and think of her everyday. Love you Sister, RIP

🙏

Amen Sister Jeannette.

You truly were the”best of the best!” R.I. P. dear Sister!🙏

I’m glad I worked there when the school was still small. Eating with the Nuns side by side was a gift. She was a force to be recon with

This would look nice framed and hung in our work areas

Fantastic lady. Friend to all, savior to many.

For the longest time I had her “rules to live by” hanging on my refrigerator, and have been looking for a copy! Now I have one, thank you for posting:) She was an incredible person.

Beautiful Lady ~ Dearly Missed 💗
