Sr. Barbara Joan Nicewander Obituary
April 21, 1934 - April 6, 2017 Nicewander, Barbara Joan, C.S.J., age 82, passed away on Thursday, April 6, 2017 in Los Angeles, CA. Born April 21, 1934 in Indianapolis, Indiana, a Sister of St. Joseph of Carondelet since March 19, 1953. Sister Barbara Joan was a dedicated teacher with great enthusiasm for 55 years and her students loved her and what she taught. She particularly loved working with the Student Council and enjoyed taking them to Sacramento to experience the working deliberations of our state governance. In 1986-87, Barbara participated in a sabbatical at Mount St. Joseph's in Cincinnati, Ohio. The lush, green setting of Mount Saint Joseph's coupled with its life enhancing enrichment program enlivened Barbara in both soul and body. One of her favorite outings was to watch boats coming in and going out at Marina del Rey. She also enjoyed summer concerts at the Hollywood Bowl. We will miss Barbara and her beautiful spirit immensely. Our hearts are full of gratitude for her beautiful life among us. Rest in peace, dear sister and friend. She is survived by her brother, Alan Richard Nicewander and her sisters, Jane Hodgson and Elizabeth Walsh. A Service of Remembrance will be held Wednesday, April 19, 2017 at 4:30pm and a Funeral Liturgy at 6:30pm, both at Carondelet Center in Los Angeles. A Garden Niche service will be held Thursday, April 20, 2017 at 10am at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, CA. Donations in memory of Sister Barbara Joan Nicewander may be sent to: Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, 11999 Chalon Road, Los Angeles, CA 90049.
