It is with sadness that we share that on Friday, October 30, Sister Mary Evelyn Labik, a beloved receptionist here at St. Anne Home, passed away.
A member of the Felician Sisters of Moon Township for 60 years, she served in her role here at St. Anne Home for more than two decades greeting visitors, connecting calls, and lovingly asking everyone whom she came into contact with to purchase a St. Anne Home Lottery Calendar, raffle tickets or Easter candy.
Please keep Sister Evelyn and the Felician sisters in your prayers.
