In Memoriam


Sister Patricia Dillon was born on December 1, 1927, in Royal Oak, Michigan. She was the fourth of seven children born to Leo and Adelaide (Sortor) Dillon. 

During the Depression, her father lost his shoe store in Royal Oak and the family moved to New York so he could look for work as a shoe salesman in Brooklyn. He eventually found a job in Philadelphia and the family settled in Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania.

Cemetery of the Adrian Dominican Sisters

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.
