In Memoriam Sister Rosalie Hennessey O.S.M.
Sister Rosalie Hennessey O.S.M.
June 29, 1929 – August 31, 2011
Our community lost one of its “points of light” when Sr. Rosalie,
the first executive director of Alpha House of Tampa, died August 31.
Sister Rosalie was the driving force who led Alpha House of Tampa from
its early days and laid a strong foundation for its sustained and secure future.
The Board of Directors, staff and volunteers of Alpha House of Tampa
will honor her legacy through continued service
to pregnant and parenting women in crisis.
An untold number of women in Hillsborough County
have Sr. Rosalie to thank for their safety and success.
We are grateful that we had a chance to honor Sister Rosalie
at our 2011 New Lives Breakfast
celebrating the 30th anniversary of Alpha House of Tampa.
Please join us in remembering Rosalie’s family and friends during this time.
She will live in our hearts – and through the lives of the thousands she served – forever.

Sr. Rosalie please post a comment.
