Sister Mildred “Micki” Flynn, 80, died Jan. 24, 2018, in Cincinnati.
Funeral services were held on Jan. 31 at the Mount Notre Dame Health Center in Reading, Ohio.
Micki spent 19 years here as a member of the English Department at South Dakota State University.
Toward the end of her tenure, the South Dakota Board of Regents awarded Micki the title of Professor Emerita of English for her work at the university.
They described how she had “… infused all of her courses with her rigor, thoroughness, enthusiasm and sense of humor which have helped her students to understand not only the details of literature, but also the broader application of universal literary themes.”
Shortly after moving to South Dakota, Micki started a master’s program in Christian spirituality and training in spiritual direction. She involved herself in the community as well as the university.
