She was a woman of faith, peace and God.

Sister Karen Klimczak is being remembered on this Good Friday, nearly four years after she was slain by one of the men to whom she devoted her life of service.

"For Jesus and for Karen the resoluteness that they had, being so filled with love and loving others, that they could continue their journey even if it meant death," said Sr. Jean Klimczak, Karen's sister.

Sister Karen co-founded Bissonette house, a halfway house for former convicts where she helped them transition from prison life to daily life.

In 2006, Craig Lynch moved in. He beat and stabbed the nun to death on Good Friday, April 14, 2006. Klimczak's body was found on Easter Sunday.

Lynch is serving 25 years to life in prison.
