Sister Marie Julie Fecher, 98, an Ursuline Sister of Mount Saint Joseph, died Thursday, Sept. 22, 2022, at Mount Saint Joseph, in her 80th year of religious life. She was a native of Hamilton, Ohio.

 

She was a music instructor for 50 years and loved to share her talents with others. Always with a smile on her face, Sister Marie Julie encouraged countless students to love music and use it as a tool to serve God.
