My grandmother, Rita Connelly, had 2 sisters, Florence and Margaret (Aunt Margaret's namesake.) Margaret decided, unbeknownst to the family, to become a nun. She went to Europe first, spent all her money and then returned home to inform the family of her decision to become a nun. She joined the Sisters of St. Joseph in Rochester, N.Y. (a Roman Catholic order founded in 1650 in Le Puy-en-Velay, France) becoming Sister Ignatius.
Sister Ignatius would remove her gimp, hike up her habit and stick her legs over the edge of the boat and into the lake. Sitting back, she'd soak her feet while drinking a beer.
