SISTER EILEEN CARNEY [Louisville, Ky.]

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — Sister (Alice Marie) Eileen Carney, OSU, 81, of Louisville, Ky., died Tuesday, June 4, 2013, at the Ursuline Motherhouse in Louisville.

She was born in Cumberland and entered the Ursuline Sisters of Louisville in 1951. She received a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education from Ursuline College in Louisville and a Master of Arts degree in History from Creighton University, Oma-ha, Neb.

A majority of Sister Eileen's 61-year ministry was in the areas of education and pastoral care. Besides Maryland, she served in ministries in Kentucky, Nebraska, New Mexico, Pennsylvania  and West Virginia.

Sister Eileen was a 1950 graduate of St. Mary High School in Cumberland. Her ministries in Maryland in-cluded assistant principal at Bishop Walsh High School in Cumberland; pastoral associate at St. Peter's Church in Oakland and St. Patrick's Parish in Mount Savage; and chaplain at Sacred Heart Hospital and Western Maryland Regional Health System.

Sister Eileen was the daughter of the late Alice (Graebenstein) Carney and John Joseph Carne Jr., of Cumberland. She was also preceded in death by her sister, Kathleen “Chippy” Mullaney and brother, Michael T. Carney.

She is survived by two sisters, Patricia Carney Helmstetter and Mary Louise McGregor, both of LaVale; one brother, the Rev. John J. Carney, of Baltimore; numerous nieces; nephews; great-nieces; great-nephews, her sisters of the Ursuline Community, and countless people whom she held dear. She saw the “Face of Christ” in everyone she met.

In celebration of her life and her service to the Lord, a memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 29, at 10 a.m. in St. Mary's Catholic Church, Oldtown Road, Cumberland.

In lieu of flowers, expressions of sympathy may be made, in her honor, to the Ursuline Sisters and mailed to the Mission Advancement Office, 3105 Lexington Road, Louisville, KY 40206.

Her place of internment is at the Archdiocese of Louisville's St. Michael's Cemetery, Louisville.
