yup. It is correct to have th apostrophy after the s.
However... I'm not entirely sure that Sister should be capitalized.
In fact, I'm leaning on having it not be capitalized.

edited to change typo - yes, I knew that that was not how you spelled it. I think I'm tired

actually, i think sister should be capitalized, especially since it's used as a name.

I think it shouldn't be capitalized. (no O in the word capitalize
 
)
If you were naming a particular sister-- like Sister Jeanne then yes, but as a general term, I don't think so.

As part of a proper name, it should be written Sisters' . The apostrophe goes at the end after the plural s. If you are only referring to the sisters in general, as your sample sentence indicates, then the lower case s is appropriate.

*** I've been a 7th grade English teacher since 1998, so I feel pretty confidence in my response to this!
