Now confined to a wheelchair and blind, Sister Andrè regretted having lost some of her physical abilities. “They say work kills, but work gave me life. I worked until I was 108,” she said last April, becoming the doyen of humanity after living first in France and then in France Europe was. “It is a great sadness but it is what she wanted, her wish was to reach her beloved brother. It was a liberation for them,” commented David Tavella, communications director at the Sainte-Catherine-Labouré nursing home.
