Sister Adrienne Beauregard died on Saturday at the age of 101. She was the only living sister who served as a direct collaborator with Sister Madeleine of Jesus, the founder of what was once Rivier College and is now Rivier University.
She dedicated 63 years of service to the school, spending much of that time as treasurer, chief financial officer and master builder.
Beauregard earned her bachelor’s degree in 1943 and worked in various finance and administration positions at the school. She previously received the Sister Madeleine of Jesus Award in 1985, the highest tribute the Alumni Association bestows on Rivier graduates, according to a release. She also received an honorary Doctorate of Business Administration in 2004, and the Rivier University Inaugural Founder’s Medal in 2012.
Her burial will be held at 10 a.m. Friday at St. Kathryn’s Parish, 4 Dracut Rd., Hudson.
