Now I’ve reached a certain age, I make a point of glancing at obituaries. It’s fascinating to see what rich and fulfilling lives so many people have lived. One recently caught my attention because it was highly unusual - that of Sister Mary Joseph, known until 1989 as Ann Russell Miller. Once a wealthy Californian socialite associating with the rich and famous, after the death of her husband, on her 61st birthday she threw an enormous party in San Francisco. The next day she flew to Chicago to join the Sisters of Our Lady of Mount Carmel where she remained for the next thirty years.
