Sister Albertis, principal of the Mallinckrodt High School, succumbed to an attack of pneumonia after an illness of brief duration last Monday afternoon.
Funeral services were held Thursday morning at 9 o’clock in the Mallinckrodt chapel, the very Rev. B. Hagspiel, S. V. D. of Techny being the celebrant of requiem high mass. Burial was in Maria Immaculata cemetery.
Mother Superior Edward of Maria Immaculata convent, who had been in New Orleans, returned on Wednesday for the funeral. A brother, Albert Bender of Williamsport, Pa., was the only relative to attend the funeral.
Sister Alberta had been the principal of the north shore Catholic girls high school since its opening in 1923. Her devotion to the education of girls of north shore will long be remembered.
Sister Alberta was born at Williamsport, Pa., on January 3, 1887. She became a member of The Sisters of Christian charity when 17 years old. After completion of her professional training she taught at the Josephinum High school in Chicago. In 1920 she became a member of the faculty of the Mallinckrodt, the normal department of the order.
Classes were suspended at Mallinckrodt on Thursday as a mark of respect for the departed educator. For twenty-four hours before the funeral students kept vigil at the bier.
