Life Story / Obituary


Loretta Servick was born in Ecorse, Michigan on July 26, 1919, the daughter of Severene (Serowick) and Casimira (Marciniak) Servick. Loretta was a member of Holy Cross Parish in Marine City at the time of her entrance into the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Nazareth on July 1, 1946. She received the name Sister Anelda at her reception on January 3, 1947. She pronounced first vows on January 3, 1949, and final vows on January 3, 1952.

Sister Anelda earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in History from Nazareth College. She took many additional classes and workshops to keep herself professionally updated in the field of Education and Catechetics. Sister Anelda taught in many schools of the Congregation including St. Joseph School in Kalamazoo, St. Joseph School in Battle Creek and St. Mary School in Port Huron. She enjoyed teaching children on the primary grade level and for thirty-seven years she dedicated herself wholeheartedly to that ministry. In 1986 Sister Anelda retired and returned to Nazareth where she prepared the guest rooms and drove Sisters to doctor appointments and on shopping trips.

Sister Anelda was a woman with a warm, pleasing personality. She served others in a quiet, unassuming manner and gave generously of her time and talents to help others. She enjoyed many hobbies: arts and crafts, music, crocheting, puzzles and games. She was most grateful for God’s many graces and blessings, for the gift of faith, her vocation, family, friends and CSJ community. Her favorite Scripture passage was from Thessalonians 5:16-18: “Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.” Now the God whom Sister Anelda sought so earnestly has welcomed her home and filled her with peace and love.
