Kathleen Sieracki Steps Down as Editor of Servicette

by Kathy Kavanaugh

For the past 6 years Kathleen Sieracki has given a great gift to each of us as Ladies of Charity. Her ability to select a theme and “hunt and gather” stories from our associations around the United States and often re-write them with her valuable editing talent contributed to creating outstanding issues of the Servicette. Following a recent survey, readership of the Servicette was extremely high and it remains our most popular means of communication for LOC.

We are most indebted to Kathleen for the countless hours she devoted to bringing to each of us the heart and essence of what it means to serve as a Lady of Charity. The camaraderie and inspiration provided has been profound and made for reading “cover to cover” commonplace. Please join me in saying thank you, Kathleen, for so effectively sharing your remarkable talent, sense of humor, and your insightful heart. We have been truly enriched.

We wish Irene Siedlarczyk all the best as she calls upon her fine intelligence and editing skills to continue to offer each of us this fine publication.

  3. It was a pleasure to work with Kathy. Under her direction, the Servicette grew by leaps and bound and she never stopped trying to make it better. It now seems appropriate that I returned to do the layout for her last issue. I wish Irene Siedlarczyk and the new designer all the best as they continue to promote the wonderful work of the Ladies of Charity USA.
