She joined the faculty of Catholic High School of Baltimore in 1971 and taught until 1980, when she was assigned by her order to Elsmere, Del. She retired in 1997.

In addition to regular classroom assignments, she provided music instruction, ran glee clubs and directed plays.

A Mass of Christian burial will be offered at 11 a.m. today at the retirement home, Assisi House.

She is survived by cousins.
