Ann Grace Lennex, CDP

Sister Ann Grace Lennex joined religious life from St. James parish in Wilkinsburg, Pa. Most of her ministry was spent in food service, including food preparation for the Sisters at the provincial motherhouse in Allison Park and coordinating government inventory for school program menus (1961–64; 65–66; 67–68); hospital food service supervisor at Divine Providence Hospital in Pittsburgh (1964–65); food service supervisor at San Juan Baptista Colegio and Convent in Orocovis, PR (1966–67); and food service supervisor at St. Joseph Junior Military School in East Liberty (1968–69). In 1969, Sister Ann Grace returned to the Pittsburgh motherhouse to continue her ministry in food service until she retired in 1991. At present, she is in prayer ministry at Providence Heights.

Beginning in 2000, when the Sisters adopted a border collie to patrol the lake in front of the motherhouse to chase away troublesome geese, Sister Ann Grace became Corky’s handler and best friend. Corky also provided pet therapy to the Sisters in the onsite infirmary. When Corky passed away, the Geese Police took over patrol of the lake.
