Sister Lois Ann Sargent celebrates her 70th Jubilee
Sister Lois Ann Sargent grew up in Clearfield, SD, and graduated from Notre Dame High School, Mitchell, SD. She received a certificate of secretarial science from Notre Dame Junior College, Mitchell, SD and earned a bachelor’s degree in business education and a master’s degree in education administration from Northern State University, Aberdeen, SD.
As an elementary teacher and principal for 36 years, Sister Lois Ann shared her loving smile and giving spirit with students and staff in Anoka, MN; Jefferson, Sioux Falls, Madison, Huron, Aberdeen and Dell Rapids, SD. Upon moving back to Aberdeen, she devoted her talents by assisting in the Presentation Sisters Development Office for eight years.
In 1991, Sister Lois Ann became the Congregational Archivist. Her love of history and great organizational skills made her a natural fit for this ministry. She decorated beautiful displays of artifacts, carefully attending to each detail and bringing thoughtful care for preserving the Presentation heritage into the future.
Always wanting to help those less fortunate, Sister Lois Ann assisted our sisters and brothers in need through our Good Samaritan Ministry. Now fully retired, Sister Lois Ann enjoys sewing, crocheting, listening to classical music and reading.
