Luana Stebbins

(Continued)

From 1981-1986, she worked in Chicago, Illinois, in education and in ministry to the poor. During this time she taught English as a second language, religious education classes, and was interim principal for one year at St. Procopius School. Her service at Friendship House, where she listened with an open heart and was available to those in great need, was what she considered her most rewarding ministry.

After returning to Clinton in 1986, Sr. Luana continued to serve as volunteer bookkeeper and board member of the Open Door Mission, as data processor at Mount St. Clare Convent, and as part-time receptionist at the Canticle until her failing health caused her to move to The Alverno in June, 2011.

She is survived by her sister, Tamara Carson; her step-mother, Mary Stebbins; and her step-sister, Kathleen Rankin, all of whom reside in Canada.

She was preceded in death by her parents and her brother Rodney.

Her gracious smile and willing spirit will be remembered by all who knew her, but especially by the Sisters of St. Francis with whom she shared her life for almost 49 years.
