It is with a heavy heart that I must tell you that Sister Jackie Hudson passed away early this morning in Washington State. Sr. Jackie died at around 7:30 am Pacific time.
After services in Washington her remains will be flown to Grand Rapids where a funeral Mass and the gift of her life will be celebrated.
We will have more details as soon as they are available.
Sisters Kay O’Neil and Michelle Meyers from Minnesota said, ”Surely Jackie never leaves us from her home in the communion of saints… We write with tears, love, and prayers of gratitude for her magnificent life. She continues to comfort and challenge us in death. May all who lived and worked with Jackie be held in tender love.”
As Liz McAllister said this morning, “Let us keep Jackie, her family, friends and community in our thoughts as we join our prayers with hers for a world at peace… and may more of us grow into her spirit.”
Deep Peace amidst such Deep Sorrow,
