I never witnessed Sr. Bernadette's musical talents, but when her memory was fading, she always remembered the name of her cat. May she rest in peace near her family in Ireland.

Sr. Bernadette,
Thank you for teaching me all the beautiful hymns we sang at St. Luke's. Til this day, when I sing them at church, I remember you. You will not be forgotten.

We remember fondly all the dozens of piano recitals we attended with our children. They were always special thanks to the dedication and hard work Sr. Bernadette invested in them. We remember you in our prayers and send our deepest condolences to her family and the Brigidines Sisters. RIP

I enjoyed the times in which I was able to music minister with Sr. Bernadette at St. Paul's. Also, the many times we sat together, shared stories about teaching music, with our many students. Blessings to Sr. Bernadette, may she rest in peace. Also, Easter Blessings to our beloved Brigidine community!

Sister Liguoria was a terrific Choir teacher/leader and even made me think I could sing. I have very fond memories of my time at St Paul's in the 50/60's, and was always fond of the Sisters. I know she is with our Lord.

Sister Bernadette was family to us. We enjoyed having her in our home for Sunday gatherings over the years that our son was her piano student. We’ll always treasure the stories she shared about Ireland. Sister may God hold you in the palm of His hand until we meet again. Our condolences to her family.

She was never one of my teachers at St Paul's. She was, however the sweetest Sister that I ever met. May she rest in eternal peace. I know she is singing ever so loudly in our heaven's choir. My sincerest condolences to her many family and friends.

I will never forget Sister Liguori's God given fingers gliding across the piano. She was a gift to all of us from Heaven Above. I'm sure she was welcomed at the gates.
