Eileen O'Rourke Memorial Scholarship Fund

Dear Friends of the Academy of Saint Elizabeth,
It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we share the devastating news that Miss Eileen O'Rourke, beloved teacher, coach, friend and mentor to countless young women, has passed away.
We are in the process of planning a memorial service on Saturday, January 15 in Holy Family Chapel so we can come together to mourn this tremendous loss to our community. A repast will immediately follow at the Academy. There will be a registration form posted by mid-December so we know how many people to expect. 

In the meantime, we are collecting tributes and photos for the memorial service HERE. We appreciate you sharing the tribute page with as many friends and family as possible. We want to ensure that her 46 years of service are honored in a personal and meaningful way across many generations of SEAsters.
The Academy of Saint Elizabeth already created a scholarship fund in Miss O'Rourke's name when she retired. It has been renamed in light of her tragic passing. This memorial scholarship fund serves as a way for members of the community to make contributions in her memory where she spent decades of her life in service to countless young women. In this way, her legacy will continue for future generations of SEAsters.
