I was an art student of Sister Trinita’s at Bishop McDevitt High School and attribute my love and passion for art to Sister Trinita’s teachings. She was such an inspiration and positive role model to me. She also had an incredible artistif ability and was always willing to share her talent and guidance in such a positive way. I am deeply saddened by her passing, and will always keep her in my heart.
