Lois (Borgemenke) Sundrup
2015 Distinguished Graduate, Class of 1966
St. Martin School celebrated National Catholic Schools Week in grand style. This special week was established in 1974 to recognize Catholic Education as a great gift to the Church and the nation. Our theme this year was, “Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service.” Faith, Knowledge and Service are evident in our SMOT Faculty and Staff.
This year Lois (Borgemenke) Sundrup, our parish Business Manager, was honored as our Distinguished Graduate for 2015. After graduating from St. Martin School in 1966, Lois went on to Mother of Mercy High School. She married Don Sundrup (St. Martin Class of 1964) and together they raised four wonderful children. Everything Lois has achieved in her life has been through her hard work and determination.
Lois became the first Business Manager for St. Martin of Tours in 1995. Anyone who knows Lois knows that she is dedicated to her job and our parish community. Lois puts in countless hours in the office and at late night parish related meetings. Plus, she works every Wednesday at our parish Bingo. Lois balances all of this with her family life, maintaining close relationships with not only her own children and grandchildren, but also her beloved siblings.
Her Catholic Faith can be seen in all she does. Lois believes that her work here at St. Martin of Tours is a Ministry of her faith. Faith, Knowledge and Service is certainly the theme to Lois Sundrup’s life. Congratulations to Lois on this well deserved award!
