Sister Mary Louise

Living out her calling by God to serve and be a "light" to others, Sister Mary Louise leaves a legacy to inspire us all, especially on Giving Hearts Day.

Sister Mary Louise Jundt, OSF
May 17, 1931 – July 4th, 2023

You may have heard her on the radio during Giving Hearts Day or read about her faith-filled development work for the mission of St. Gerard’s Community of Care in rural Hankinson, North Dakota. Even if these were your only reference points for knowing Sister Mary Louise Jundt, each would be enough to make her unforgettable.

We at Dakota Medical Foundation know and will remember Sister Mary Louise as an icon of service to others and a gracious ambassador of Giving Hearts Day. She carried a contagious spirit and “light” of purpose. Sister Mary Louise embraced the needs of others as opportunities to serve and live the life God called her to live.

Honestly, for me, it’s a joy, and it’s a blessing really.
Because that’s what my vocation and our vocation as religious is really; to be there for others.
And these are all opportunities to be there to make a difference and it can spread beyond.
