I just learned of Dr.Beine's passing. She served her God, Community and her patients with the same unselfish drive and dedication.

She treated my Mom and later me. I Loved her calm midwestern speech. She had a unique way of getting her point across.

I look forward to seeing her again when my path in life meets up with her again. Until then I will miss her deeply. But I like to think that a little bit of her lives on in those who knew and loved her.

It doesn't matter where you are going it's knowing how to get there. Life is a Journey.

Roger That, Dr. Beine.

With All Due Respect,

Our Adrian Dominican cemetery with its circular headstones is a beautiful place of rest for women who gave their lives in service to God—and a peaceful place for contemplation and remembrance. 

We will post memorial reflections on our faithfully departed Sisters and Associates. If you would like to reflect on a Sister or Associate who has gone before us, please send your reflections – no more than 500 to 600 words – to .

We invite you to meet some of the wonderful women who have recently crossed into eternity.
