In Memoriam Sister Rosalie Hennessey O.S.M.

In Memoriam

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.

She will live in our hearts – and through the lives of the thousands she served – forever.
