Sister Marjean (Martha Regina) Staud, daughter of the late Aloysius and Eleanor Grottendieck Staud, died at Mount St. Joseph on Tuesday (Oct. 8, 2013).

She was born in Fairmont, on Dec. 7, 1917. She attended St. Peter Elementary and High Schools, graduating in 1935. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Education degree from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pa., and continued her studies at Seton Hill in Greensburg, Pa., and Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wis.

Sister Marjean entered the congregation of St. Joseph on July 2, 1935. She received the religious habit and was named Sister Mary Luke on Dec. 31 of that year and began her novitiate training. She made temporary profession of vows in 1937 and final profession of vows on Dec. 31, 1940. She celebrated her 75th anniversary of entrance on July 1, 2010.
