Sister of the Day: Sister Hedwige Siminski

Sister Hedwige Siminski  1902-1973


Sister Hedwige began as a creative classroom teacher.  In 1931 she contracted TB and lived with poor health from then on.   She doubtless lived up to her claim, “No matter what happens, there is never an excuse for not being a lady.”  Sister Stanislaus was her younger sister.

This is the 100th Centennial of the Sisters of Saint Benedict of Crookston.  Because of our Centennial year, we are featuring a Sister of the Day every Weekday and memories of buildings and happenings on weekends throughout the entire year.   Take a “Peek Behind the Veil” and watch this space every day during the entire 2019 year!  To see past Sisters of the Day or Peeks Behind the Veil, click here:
