      Sister Loretta Schirmer, OSB

      Sister Loretta Schirmer, OSB, 91, a Benedictine Sister of Mount St. Scholastica, Atchison, died at the monastery on May 26, 2013.

      The vigil service will be at 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 29 in the monastery chapel, and the Mass of Resurrection will be there at 10:30 Thursday, May 30.

      Sister Loretta was born in Newark, N.J. to August H. and Mary Mager Schirmer. After graduating from Benedictine Academy in Elizabeth, N.J., she came to Mount St. Scholastica for college and entered the community in 1940. After a few years as an elementary teacher, she pursued the study of home economics. She received her master's degree in food and nutrition, with an emphasis in institutional management, from Kansas State University, and worked in food service at the monastery and at Mount St. Scholastica College. She served as a teacher, principal and librarian at numerous schools in the Kansas City area (Lillis High School, St. Pius X-Mission, St. Benedict and Sacred Heart Schools - Kansas City, Kansas), in Maryville and St. Joseph, Mo., in Atchison, and Baileyville, as well as supervisor of the residence hall for Mount St. Scholastica Academy.

      She was predeceased by her parents, her brother William, and her sisters Sister Mary Austin Schirmer, Catherine Schirmer and Elizabeth Burke. She is survived by her sisters Mary Agnes Schoenberger, Margaret Conlin, Teresa Piccoli, and Anne Marie Cuff, by nieces and nephews and by her monastic family. Becker-Dyer-Stanton Funeral Home (www.beckerdyer.com) is in charge of arrangements. Memorials may be sent to Mount St. Scholastica or online at the Mount’s web site.
