SISTER AELRED SCHROEFFEL OSF Obituary
SCHROEFFEL SISTER AELRED, OSF
Age 103, of Millvale, on Monday, June 23, 2014. Daughter of the late Anthony and Anna Schroeffel; sister of the late Anthony, Joseph and Louis Schroeffel, Gertrude Collins, Helen Schroeffel, Margaret Grenda, Elizabeth Schroeffel, and Celine Heimbuecher. Sister entered the Sisters of St. Francis in 1927. For most of her years in the community, she was a high school teacher excelling in the teaching of science. For several years during summer breaks, she taught at Duquesne University as well as St. Francis Hospital in Pittsburgh, where she instructed inhalation therapy students in chemistry and physics. Her love and interest in her pupils was well known because up to her death, many of them still kept in contact through visits and the writing of letters or cards. During her stay in the community's health care unit, sister endeared herself in a special way to the nurses and aides who tended to her by her display of humor, prayerfulness, and genuine concern for others. At the age of 103, she left a legacy that few will forget. Visitation at the Mt. Alvernia Motherhouse Chapel, 146 Hawthorne Rd., Millvale, Tuesday from 2-7 p.m., where Funeral Mass will be Wednesday at 11 a.m. Memorial contributions may be made to the Sisters of St. Francis Ministry, Formation or Retirement Fund, 146 Hawthorne Rd., Pgh., PA 15209. Professional services entrusted to D'ALESSANDRO FUNERAL HOME & CREMATORY, LTD., Lawrenceville.
