“Sister Mary of St. Joseph, O.C.D.” (Mary Joseph Daly) was from the Gesu Parish, as was Sister Stanislaus of the Blessed Sacrament, O.C.D. (Helen Kelly).  They were very close, and died on the same day five years apart.  When Sister Stanislaus died, Sister Mary took up the work for St Therese.

Sister Mary of St. Joseph and and Sister Stanislaus were schoolmates at Notre Dame de Namur.  They were both assigned later as Portress.
