They were among four Sisters of Mercy, three from the Rochester area, who were involved in a crash while heading to Mass in Erie, Pa., on Sunday, July 16.
“Arlene was enthusiastic, larger than life. Joanne was quieter, but had a zest for life, and was just always present,” Sister Kathleen Wayne said during a recent Mass at St. Rita’s in Webster.
