Artist’s mural of 13 Felicians who died of COVID-19 elicits emotional response 

When Edward Stross learned of the 13 Felician Sisters who recently passed away in their Livonia motherhouse, he knew he had to do something.

Most of the sisters died in April and May, but news of their deaths made national headlines in July, devastating a community facing COVID-19 in isolation.

So Stross, a professional artist with his Gonzo Art Studio at 28305 Gratiot in Roseville, took up his brush and began painting.

The end result was a life-size mural of the 13 Felicians, using portraits of the nuns submitted to Stross by people who saw his idea for a mural on a Facebook post.
