She also ministered elsewhere in the Diocese of Owensboro, the Archdiocese of Louisville and in Missouri.

Survivors include nieces and nephews and the members of her religious community.

The funeral Mass will be at 10:30 a.m. Monday at Mount Saint Joseph, where visitation will begin Sunday at 4 p.m., with a wake service following at 6:30 p.m.
