Comment On The Passing Of Sister Janice Ryan

“Sister Janice was a force of nature.  She was a human dynamo.  She made it her job to make policymakers uncomfortable as her way to achieving real change to help those who struggle.  And indeed she made a real difference.  The world is a better place for her selfless advocacy for others.  I always felt a further connection to her when her namesake niece joined my staff several years ago.

“Marcelle and I went to be with her last weekend, as the end was near.  We were so moved to be with her one last time, as we said a prayer and to let her know what she means to us and to countless others.  With all Vermonters, we sorely feel this painful loss.”
