Lucy D. Savini, 80, of Hainesport, a registered nurse who, in retirement, cared for retired nuns in Philadelphia, died of liver cancer Friday, March 21, at home.
Born in the Overbrook neighborhood of Philadelphia, Miss Savini graduated from West Catholic Girls' High School.
She earned her nursing degree at St. Agnes Hospital School of Nursing in South Philadelphia and began her career there, before transferring to the former Presbyterian Hospital.
Miss Savini was a nurse at Girard College in the 1980s and 1990s, her sister, Rita Giordano, said in a phone interview.
"She was a dedicated nurse," Giordano said, so after retiring from Girard in the early 1990s, Miss Savini nursed retired nuns of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus at the St. Cabrini Residence in West Philadelphia.
