Sr. Cabrini Arami, age 81, died on Saturday, Oct. 1, 2011, at the Holy Angels Convent Infirmary.
She was born on May 22, 1930 to Amedeo and Angelina (Vacarie) Arami in Montague, Texas.
She had an older sister, Velva Arami Sloan, who preceded her in death, and a younger brother, Herman, plus nieces and nephews.
After completing high school, she entered Holy Angels Convent in Jonesboro, AR, and made Profession of First Vows in 1949. She attributed her vocation to the Olivetan Benedictine Sisters, teaching in Muenster, who also taught religious education on weekends in her parish in Montague. After making profession, she earned a B.S. degree in elementary education and a M.E.D. in secondary education, with emphasis in math. Teaching assignments included schools and catechetical classes in a career that spanned over forty years. She was an outstanding math teacher and served as principal for a number of these years.
Sr. Cabrini's teaching career was interrupted when she was appointed Subprioress for the community from 1975 to 1981. She was also elected Prioress from 1897 to 1993. During Sr. Cabrini's tenure as Prioress, St. Bernard's erected the Ben E. Cancer Treatment Center, the multilevel parking deck was built, the AHEC Program was established and the Hospice program was begun. Due to health problems she retired in 2001 and had major heart surgery. After recuperating, she continued to live in the Infirmary for the remainder of her years.
Mass of Christian Burial was held in Holy Angels Convent Chapel. Arrangments were by Emerson Funeral Home. Interment was in Our Lady of Mount Olivet Cemetery on the convent grounds.
