Barbara Quell, IHM Associate

Barbara Quell, IHM Associate, died July 31, 2019 at age 87. She met the IHM Sisters during her years at St. Catherine School (Detroit) and joined the IHM congregation after high school.

As Sister Loretta Marie, IHM, she taught in schools in Michigan, Florida and Puerto Rico. Barbara left the congregation in the mid-1970s and taught at Paul V. Moore High School and at Central Square High School, both in Central Square, N.Y.

She never lost her love for the IHM community and became an IHM Associate in 1979, in part to help extend the ministry of the sisters. After her retirement, she volunteered at St. Mary in Akron, Ohio. In her later years, her ministry was one of prayer.
