A funeral Mass was celebrated for Sister Mary Elizabeth Godefroy, VHM, Aug. 18 in the chapel of Visitation Academy in Town and Country. Sister Mary Elizabeth died Aug. 15 at the Visitation Monastery at Catherine's Residence in Frontenac. She was 91.

Born in Mexico City, Mexico, in 1926, she was the oldest of four children.

They went to a private home for catechism instruction and their First Communion.
