Sister Mary Philomena supervised Dining Services and managed the Jennings kitchen for 52 years. In 2005, Jennings family member Barbara Kozel made a gift to establish The Sister Mary Philomena Dining Services Staff Appreciation Fund, which recognizes outstanding staff in the Dining Services department at our annual appreciation luncheon. Barbara met Sister while she worked as a “tray girl” in high school, and the two have remained close friends for over 38 years.

It brought Barbara much joy to create an endowed fund to honor Sister Mary Philomena and to recognize outstanding Dining Services staff. It has also brought Sister a tremendous amount of joy to know that her compassion, friendliness, and fun-loving personality continue to enhance the lives of the members of the Jennings community. The fund will preserve Sister’s legacy and her many contributions to the Sisters of the Holy Spirit and Jennings.

If you would like to learn more about creating a named endowment fund, or adding your own tribute gift to the Sister Mary Philomena Dining Services Staff Appreciation Fund, please contact the development office at 216-581-2902, ext. 2327.
