Sr. Marcy was a truly good person. She cared for those in need and selflessly did nice things. I realize that as a nun, that sounds sort of like the job description, but she really did go above and beyond. She helped a 90+ year old friend be mobile and provided friendship when needed. Sympathies to Sr. Marcy's family. You lost a good one. ((hugs))

My condolences to the family. My heart aches from hearing of sister Romine passing. I didn't know her well, but have encountered her many Sundays when she would bring an elderly member of First Presbyterian Church in New Orleans to church. She was always so up beat and friendly and had a smile that took you to a happier place. I will miss her presence and warm heart for others. To the Family, God knows when he needs those whom have served his purpose. Sister Marcy is in a much better place and her presence will always be with you and all those she has helped and loved. Blessings to You All Cheryl First Presbyterian Church 5401 S. Claiborne Ave., New Orleans, LA 70125

I worked with Sister Marcy at Crescent Care. She was the embodiment of joy and kindness. We frequently talked about our cats and how much joy they brought us. I am so saddened to hear of her passing. My love and prayers to her family and loved ones.
