Nurses memorial unveiled in Mishawaka


Saint Joseph Regional Medical Center unveiled a memorial honoring the Sisters of the Holy Cross Civil War Nurses.  The memorial salutes the contributions of the Sister of the Holy Cross, who served our county as the first Navy Nurses.  Approximately 80 of the 160 sisters of the Holy Cross in the United States served as nurses.

Sister Ruth Murry Nickerson, CSC says it makes her happy to see the recognition being paid to the teachers who gave their service.  "To remember and recognize keeps it alive," Nickerson said, "the spirit of giving, the spirit of selflessness, the spirit of caring about the other as Jesus would care."

The memorial is located outside of the hospitals Mishawaka campus and is open to the public daily.
