Sister Margaret Ann Nowacki, CSC Sept. 9, 1926 - May 28, 2015 NOTRE DAME - Born and raised in California, Sister Margaret Ann called herself a real native daughter. She entered the Sisters of the Holy Cross from Los Angeles in 1944. Having endured the Midwest weather during her four years of formation, she returned to California and began 38 years of ministry there. She was in education for 21 years, 10 years as personnel director at the archdiocesan offices and seven years with the Writing to Read literacy program. Her travels to the Holy Land, Poland, Bangladesh, Uganda and Le Mans, France, enriched her life as did time with her family and friends. Her love of creation and her apparent inability to say "no" endeared her to many. Reception of the Body and Wake: June 1, at 4:30 p.m. Mass of the Resurrection: Tuesday, June 2, at 10:30 a.m. These ceremonies will take place in the Church of Our Lady of Loretto.
