Sister Marie earned her Master’s Degree of Education from the Catholic University, Washington, D.C. Sister Marie served many people in the Toledo Diocese through Education Ministry in both Parochial and Public schools. She taught at Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Fort Jennings, Marywood, Seneca-Huron Schools in Attica, and Reed. She taught and was principal at St. Patrick’s, Bryan, Ohio, and at St. Bernard’s, New Washington. Sister Marie served as the Coordinator of Education at St. Anthony’s Villa in Toledo for two years. Then she became Executive Secretary for the Sisters of St. Francis, Tiffin, for the following 6 years.

Upon leaving the field of Education Sister Marie continued to serve the community and others through her ministry of prayer and service. At the time of her death she was a Minister of Prayer.
Sister Marie always had a beaming, friendly smile on her face no matter where she was or what she was doing. For relaxation Sister Marie enjoyed reading, crocheting, sewing, and collecting stamps. Some might even say that she put her own “stamp” on life these past 80 years.
