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.

She then moved to Mother Theodore Guerin Convent in River Grove, Ill., giving service to sisters while continuing composing.  In 1996, she moved to the Motherhouse. 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.
