Sister Mary Kenneth Hrbal

a Sister of Charity of Nazareth, was called to her heavenly home on Sunday, May 26, 2019 at the age of 89 and in the 72nd year of her religious life. Sister entered the Congregation of the Vincentian Sisters of Charity from Saints Peter and Paul Parish in Johnston, PA in 1947.
Sister Mary Kenneth received her B.S.Ed. from Duquesne University, followed by her Master of Arts Degree from Cardinal Stritch University with a major in Special Education.

During her many years of education ministry Sister served in the dioceses of Pittsburgh and Greensburg, PA, and Youngstown, Ohio.

There are certain words and phrases that characterize Sister Mary Kenneth such as deep faith, prayerfulness, sense of humor, kindness and a beautiful smile. Her deep love of children is evident by her heart for those with disabilities and who were mentally challenged.
Sister Mary Kenneth was preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Mary (Beno) Hrbal. She is survived by her brother John Hrabal, nieces, nephews and Sisters in Community.
