NADP notes the passing of a long-time supporter, Notre Dame Sister Elaine Herold, who died following surgery on February 14.
Sister Elaine was a counselor and chaplain, and served as the director of pastoral care at St. Elizabeth Regional Medical Center in Lincoln for 16 years. She had recently been elected to a leadership position with the Notre Dame Sisters in Omaha.
In addition to her professional accomplishments, she was well-known for her kolache baking skills, and as one sister mentioned, “with Elaine, there was no stranger. She welcomed everyone into her heart.” Along with all the Notre Dame Sisters, Sister Elaine worked and prayed for repeal of the death penalty in Nebraska. We salute her long service.
