Sister Philip Marie Link, 93, died Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2018, at her home at Veronica House, Bridgeton, Mo. Georgeanne Elizabeth Link was born in Quincy to Philip and Edna Maas Link, and became Sister Philip Marie when she took her vows to become a Notre Dame nun.

She celebrated her 70th Jubilee in 2013.
