SINSINAWA—Sister Kathleen Loughrin, OP, age 76, died on Monday, April 29, 2019. She graduated in 1961, from New London High School, New London, Wis. She made her profession in the Order of St. Dominic in 1963, at the Sinsinawa Mound, Sinsinawa, Wis.
We mourn her passing, and now we celebrate and give thanks for her life and legacy of giving that had such a profound impact on all. She graduated Summa Cum Laude from Edgewood College in Madison.

She had a deep passion for the power of education and was a role model to students, staff and everyone she knew. Those memories will be cherished by the many people she touched along her journey.

She was preceded in death by her parents, William and Genevieve Loughrin; her sisters and brothers-in-law, Mary and Tom Hoffmann, Helen and Ron Hamrick, Jane Loughrin, and Butch Malouf; nephew, Brian Malouf and great-nephew, Trevor Malouf. She will live forever in our hearts through her unbreakable bond with her siblings, friends, families and the Sinsinawa Dominican Community.
