Sister Catherine Livers

TERRE HAUTE — Sister Catherine Livers, 92, died at 1:10 p.m. on Oct. 20, 2013, in Mother Theodore Hall, St. Mary-of-the-Woods. She was born in Loogootee, on May 23, 1921, to Harry J. and Ethel Norris Livers, and was baptized Catherine Rose.  

Sister entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Providence on June 29, 1937, and received the name Sister Agatha. She professed final vows on Jan. 23, 1946. Sister Catherine earned a bachelor’s degree from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College and master’s degrees from Indiana State University and Seattle University. In her 76 years as a Sister of Providence, she ministered in education for 29 years at schools in Indiana, Illinois, Maryland and North Carolina. Following this, she gave 10 years to congregation leadership in St. Gabriel Province based in Indianapolis. In 1980 she moved into church administration, serving, among other positions, as Vicar for Religious for the dioceses of Peoria, Ill., and Ogdensburg, N.Y. In 2002 she moved to the Motherhouse where she volunteered in many areas, including St. Ann Clinic and the Motherhouse Health Care.  

Sister Catherine was respected and loved for her spiritual depth, insight, and her accepting, non-judgmental ways. In the last nine years of her life, she served in the role of spiritual director for many people in the area, including some of her sisters.  She was well known for her delectable candy and cookies, which she enjoyed giving to the staff at the Motherhouse and to her sisters, family, and friends.

Sister is survived by a sister-in-law, Bernie Livers of Evansville; and nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by a sister, Eileen Livers McCleary; and brothers, Donald, Joseph, Glenn and Carl Livers.

The wake is 2:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, 2013, in the Church of the Immaculate Conception, with the Wake Service at 4:30 p.m. The Mass of Christian Burial is 11 a.m. Friday, Oct. 25, 2013, with the Rev. Daniel R. Hopcus presiding. Burial is in the cemetery of the Sisters of Providence. DeBaun Funeral Home-Wabash Avenue assisted with arrangements.
