October 16, 1914 - September 16, 2005
Sister Lucia Constantino, PHJC passed away on September 16, 2005 at Catherine Kasper Home in Donaldson, Indiana. She was born Anna Constantino on October 16, 1914 to Antonio and Lucia Constantino in what is now Skokie, Illinois. She was the second oldest of four children.
She entered the novitiate of the Poor Handmaids of Jesus Christ Congregation on June 25, 1946 and took her final vows on June 24, 1953. Sister Lucia ministered as a nurse for almost 30 years—sixteen of those as a pediatric nurse, which she loved. After retiring as a nurse she continued to work at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Chicago as a library assistant and as a volunteer in the surgical waiting room. She retired to Catherine Kasper Home in 1999.
May she rest in peace!
