Raimondo Statement on the Passing of Sister Ann Keefe, SSJ

01/18/2015
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Governor Gina M. Raimondo today released the following statement on the passing of Sister Ann Keefe, SSJ.

"As one of our state's strongest voices for social and economic justice, Sister Ann Keefe always pushed us to be better and to do better for one another, especially our less fortunate neighbors. From City Arts to the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence, and every cause and organization in between that she touched, her tenacity to tackle the problems too often ignored will be greatly missed.

"We must all work to honor her memory everyday by promoting kindness, peace and justice in our homes, our schools and our neighborhoods. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time."
