Sister Lisa Lucht, O.P.

Kenosha -- Sister Lisa Lucht, O.P., 65, passed away at Golden Living Center, Kenosha on Saturday December 13, 2008.

Patricia Ann Lucht was born July 1, 1943, to William and Carmen (nee: Van Straten) Lucht in New London, WI. In September 1962 she joined the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity in Manitowoc, WI, and at her reception in 1963 she was given the religious name Sister Lisa. She professed her first vows in 1964 and her final vows in 1969. In 1975 she finalized a transfer to the Racine Dominicans.

Sister Lisa spent many years in service to others in teaching both children and adults and as a Pastoral Associate.

From 1995 to 2000 she was the Chancellor of the Diocese of Green Bay. She also served in Minnesota. In 2005 she moved to Siena Center and in July 2007 she became a resident at Golden Living Center, Kenosha, WI.

Sister Lisa is survived by the Racine Dominican Sisters and Associates; her brothers Larry (Sandra), Jack (Janice), and Carl (Kate); sisters Lurana (Dennis) Nelson and June (Frank) Voss; nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents.
