Sister Lorraine (Juanita) Maginot, OSU
Sister Lorraine taught grades one through eight (except seventh) in Louisville at Sacred Heart Model School and at St. Joseph, Our Lady of Lourdes, St. Rita, St. Clement and Most Blessed Sacrament schools; in Sidney, Nebraska, at St. Patrick Academy; and in Cumberland, Maryland, at St. Mary School. Sister was a very proper, exact person, always busy. A graduate of Sacred Heart Model School remembers Sister Lorraine for her detailed, but patient, instructions in cursive writing. “I can still write beautifully today.” When asked what was the most difficult ministry, Sister would always reply—serving as principal for one year at St. Mary. She often said, “I liked teaching the lower grades!” Sister Lorraine also ministered in Iowa City, Iowa.
