On a beautiful sunny San Diego afternoon, Barbara J. Menard joined Scripps Mercy and Scripps Hospital executives on Monday, September 25, 2012 to remember the life of Sr. Virginia Gillis, RSM. A lovely pick rose was dedicated in her honor in front of Scripps Mercy Hospital in Hillcrest. A blessing was offered by Sr. Mary Gallagher, RSM. Several Sisters of Mercy shared remembrances of Sr. Virginia including Sr. Mary Leonita Metoyer, RSM and Sr. Cecile Ley, RSM, who also provided lovely background music. A reception immediately followed the dedication in the Melisa Reasner McGuire Health Sciences Library Garden.
