Sister JB was very close to my mother here in Excelsior in mother's final years. I believe she originated the Befrienders ministry at St. John's parish. I recall her as a warm, friendly person who loved a good laugh. She was the personification of Christian love. RIP

I never had Sr JB for a class, but I learned a lot from her over the 40 years we knew each other. Who'd imagine a service project for Christian Involvement would turn into four years in SJB's AV Center and lead to an enduring friendship. SJB might have been small in stature but her gentle spirit was large enough for all. I'll always cherish the memories of her.

JB was the nun who gave us our best stories in the years afterSBHS. She liked to play tough on the outside, but she had a soft heart on the inside. At Sister Ruth's funeral, no one laughed harder at remembering our shenanigans than she did! She will be remembered fondly by many of us from the class of '70;

Sr. JB was a fine and authentic woman, a quiet and strong presence, a treasure in our family. May she enjoy eternity!

JB was a treasured aunt.
Always had a smile-big heart-warm hug and prayers for the support we needed.
The dear Lord needed another angel for his Christmas choir so JB was chosen.
God has you in his keeping- I have you in my heart.
