Sister Mary Miriam Kivlighan, S.S.N.D., former dean of women at the College of Notre Dame of Maryland, died yesterday of congestive heart failure at the Maria Health Center at the motherhouse of the School Sisters of Notre Dame.

She worked in the alumnae office from 1971 until 1975 and then continued to live in the convent at the college for about five years. Her first two assignments were as a teacher at St. Mary's High School in Bryantown and then at the Institute of Notre Dame.
The former Marion Bernardine Kivlighan was born in Staunton, Va., and attended St. Francis School there before finishing her high school education at what is now Notre Dame Preparatory. A College of Notre Dame of Maryland alumna who earned a master's degree at Catholic University and also did graduate work at Columbia University, she entered S.S.N.D. in 1925.
A Mass of Christian burial is to be offered at 10 a.m. tomorrow in the chapel of Villa Assumpta, the motherhouse of her order, at 6401 N. Charles St.
