Sister entered the Congregation of the Sisters of Providence on Feb. 11, 1937, and was given the name Sister Mary Canice. She professed final vows Aug. 15, 1945.  Sister earned a bachelor’s degree from Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, and a master’s degree from the University of Cincinnati.

Besides volunteering for many duties there, she co-authored with Sister Brendan Harvey “The Story of Anne Théresè” a biography of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin for children which was put in coloring book form in 2006. Both of these are still available from The Gift Shop at Providence Center.
