Sister Janice Marie Klein, OSSR, died June 15. She was 73.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, private services will be held, with interment in the Redemptoristine Cemetery at Liguori.
Born in Waterloo, Iowa, on Aug. 17, 1946, she worked at the Collins/Boeing Plant in Cedar Rapids for a number of years before joining the Redemptoristine Nuns at Liguori. When she celebrated her silver jubilee as a religious sister several years ago, she expressed her gratitude to the Lord for her vocation and the happiness it has brought her. Her years in the monastery were spent in prayer for those she loved and those in need of God’s grace. To her sisters in community, she was both a friend and an example of service in her many years in leadership. She gave classes to the new members and talks on spirituality to the lay associates.
She is survived by her brothers, Gary Klein of Roanoke, Virginia, Ron Klein of Minneapolis, and Joe Klein of Denver, Colorado.
