Sister of Charity of Nazareth Marie Flowers died Oct. 14 at Nazareth Home. She was 50 years old. Sister Flowers, a native of Detroit, professed perpetual vows as an SCN just over a year ago, on June 11, 2016, having professed her first vows two years earlier. She was diagnosed with advanced-stage cancer in January of 2016. Though her time as a religious was short, she spent much of her life in service to others, serving primarily as a social worker and advocating for children.
