The Immaculata community mourns the passing of Sister Marie Lorraine Bruno, IHM, who died in the 69th year of her religious life at the age of 90.
Sister Lorraine entered the congregation of the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1953 and professed her first vows in 1955. She earned her undergraduate degree from Immaculata, a Master of Arts from the Catholic University of America and a Diplome de Langue et de Culture Francaises from the Institut Catholique de Paris. She shared her love of the French language and culture with students from Catholic schools across the region before becoming a faculty member at Immaculata where she taught from 1971-1978 and 1981-1985. She then became dean of the Evening Division (now known as CAPS) until 1990. Sister Lorraine then rejoined the faculty teaching French until 2012, when she became an associate emerita of foreign language until her death.
