Sister Marie Labre Hartmann, CSJ

Brentwood — Sister Marie Labre Hartmann, 83, a member of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Brentwood, died Dec. 9 in Good Samaritan Hospital in West Islip.
She entered the congregation in 1943 and began her teaching ministry in the Brooklyn Diocese at St. Teresa Avila (1944-1952) and St. Francis of Assisi (1952-1959). She earned her bachelor’s degree in math from Manhattan College and in 1962 received her master’s in library science from St. John’s University and her post-graduate degree from Columbia University. She taught at Visitation in Brooklyn and Queen of Peace in Kew Gardens between 1959-1966. It was at this time that she began her work as a librarian.
In her ministry as a librarian, she was instrumental in promoting libraries in elementary schools in the Brooklyn Diocese, she taught courses at St. Joseph’s College for sisters who were interested in becoming librarians as a second career, she received the CLA Award for Outstanding Contribution to Catholic Librari-anship, and while working as special project coordinator in the Brooklyn diocesan office, she was credited with the creation of diocesan television programs and workshops to help establish elementary school libraries through library funding and government programs. Between 1990-1998, she served as librarian in Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Brooklyn and St. Robert Bellarmine in Bayside.
She is survived by her brothers Robert, Alfred, Gerard, and Msgr. John Hartmann, who presided at her funeral Mass, and her sister, Dorothy Hartmann Weir. Among her several nieces and nephews is Msgr. Thomas Hartman. Her funeral Mass was celebrated in Maria Regina Chapel on Dec. 13, followed by burial in Calvary Cemetery here.

MFound: 1954 MC loss remembered


Jack Coffey Field was dedicated on April 3, 1954, and Coffey retired following the 1958 season. His last home game was May 17th, 1958, which was deemed Jack Coffey Day, where the Rams defeated Manhattan College 14-7. To forever honor Coffey, then Fordham president Rev. Laurence J. McGinley, S.J. retired Coffey’s title of “Graduate Manager of Athletics,” so no one else would ever hold that title. An award was also created in Coffey’s name, which was originally given to the student-athlete achieving the highest academic standing, but from 1965 to the present day, the award honors an alumnus, administrator, or coach for outstanding contributions and dedication to the athletic program.
