Sister Mary Alice was born on January 1, 1915, in Morris, Minn., the tenth of 14 children born to the late Jacob and Susan (Czech) Rudnicki. Accepted as a Franciscan Sister of Little Falls, on August 12, 1935, she made first profession of vows on August 12, 1937, and final vows on August 12, 1940. She was a Franciscan Sister for 77 years.

Sister Mary Alice was a quiet and fun-loving person. A twinkle in her eye always followed her dry sense of humor. She was blessed with a very keen and observant nature that highly qualified her as a nurse anesthetist. In her retirement years, she was very sensitive to the needs of others and would fulfill their needs if she was able. Sister Mary Alice loved to go shopping not so much for herself but, to buy those items she knew others needed. Sister Mary Alice worked best on a one-to-one basis being very attentive with all for whom she was responsible. She loved quiet and solitude with the rosary as her favorite prayer.

Sister Mary Alice became a registered nurse at St. Francis School of Nursing, Breckenridge, and a certified registered nurse anesthetist at St. Joseph Hospital, St. Paul. She served in Moorhead, Parkers Prairie, Alexandria, Sauk Centre, Minn.; Milwaukee and Madison, Wisc.

Preceded in death by her parents and siblings: Leo, Joseph, Francis, Marie, Sylvester, Edward, Raymond, Josephine, Anselm, Angeline Erickson, Paul and Charles, she is survived by her sister, Leona Cruze, Paynesville, nieces, nephews and her Franciscan Community.

Donations to Franciscan Sisters Ministries preferred.
