The Italian marble statue of Elizabeth Ann Seton which stood in the courtyard of MaineGeneral’s Seton campus was moved recently to its new home at St. Francis Catholic Cemetery, Grove Street, Waterville. The move was made possible by Rock and Bernice Lacroix of Provost Monuments in Benton. Seton was foundress of the Sisters of Charity, who built and operated the hospital for many years until it became part of MaineGeneral Health. The statue was originally donated to the hospital by Mr. and Mrs. Napoleon Emond, Mr. and Mrs. Everest Laverdiere and Mr. and Mrs. Leo Michaud, all now laid to rest at St. Francis Cemetery.
