Sister of the Day: Sister Hilda Powers

Sister Hilda Powers  1870-1944

We have no clear photograph of Sister Hilda and her records give three different guesses at her year of birth.  But we do know at least three things about her on the best authority (the other Sisters): she was born in Plattsburg, New York; she took her responsibility for her work in St. Vincent Hospital business office very seriously; she had a repertoire of jokes for every occasion.

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:
