About Sister Patricia Hottinger: She was the last of the Helpers (1903-2017) to leave St. Louis. She enjoys visiting people in three different Chicago centers. Weekly Wii bowling is high on her priority list. Curiosity for new experiences brought her back to trying to teach herself piano, and finding a Spanish-language computer course. She enjoys keeping in touch with St. Louis friends through phone calls and cards.
