Clementine Carey

F, b. 7 July 1903, d. 27 July 1969
  • Biography: SISTER GENEVIEVE THERESE CAREY
    1903-1969

    Nora Madigan and Joseph Carey, both Chicago-born of Irish parentage, brought five daughters into life. Clementine, who was born July 7, 1903 in Chicago was the fourth daughter. She was only five years old when their mother died. Ten year later their father, a fireman, died. It was like losing another mother, for he was that in the memory of his daughters.

    Clementine was associated with St. Leo Parish on the South Side from baptism until she entered the novitiate in Adrian, and, in fact, long after that time. How she happened to come to Adrian at all is a little unusual. She and her sisters were taught by the Sisters of Providence of St. Mary-of-the-Woods at St. Leo Grade School and High School. Clementine had included a two-year business course in her high school program, so she was working in an office at the age of 18.

    When she was going into her 20th year, friends introduced her to Sister Agnes Rita Paiement who was then teaching at Aquinas High School in Chicago. That meeting drew Clementine to Adrian. Having made up her mind, Clementine lost no time. She entered the novitiate on December 8, 1923, the feast of the Immaculate Conception. She received the habit and the name Genevieve Therese the following year on August 12. After Christmas she, then a postulant, was sent to St. Theresa, Detroit, as an assistant teacher in the second grade. The following September she taught at St. Ambrose for a year before making her novitiate. She professed her vows two years from the date of her reception, August 12, 1926.

    A gentle woman, mature for her age, she was destined to teach eighth grade girls and boys during her 43 years of religious profession, with the exception of five years in business education.

    Her assignments were quite evenly divided between Michigan and Illinois. In Michigan, after her profession, she taught at Visitation and Precious Blood, Detroit; St. Mary, Royal Oak; St. Bernard Alpena; and Resurrection, Lansing, which was a ten-year period at the healthiest time in her life.

    In Illinois, she taught at St. Philip Neri, and St. Kilian; St. Mary of Mount Carmel in Chicago; St. Joseph, Homewood; and at Sacred Heart, Joliet.

    After medical attention in 1958, she was sent to St. Mary Star of the Sea in Oceanside, California, an assignment intended to be a change from the heavy enrollment and changing neighborhood schools in Chicago. The following year she was back in Chicago, apparently for more medical attention.

    A lovely, sensitive lady, she was inclined to be too conscientious and serious. Perhaps at the age of five, and again at fifteen, she had missed the laughter in growing-up while she mourned for her parents. Then, too, by her own admission, sickness frightened her.

    In her appointment as principal-superioress ot Precious Blood, Detroit, she was known by pastor, sisters and people to be a consistently just and gracious lady, effective in her capacity, yet she asked Mother Gerald to allow her to resign. It appears that she bordered on scrupulosity.

    1n 1962, she took a few months to rest, after which she gladly went to Mount St. Mary Academy to teach commercial subjects. She had kept up her business skills in volunteer service in her school assignments over the years so she was at ease with a small class of high school girls. The memory of her in that time comes through a letter written by one of her students. Dated November 4, 1975, and signed Mary Sue Verachtert Glines, it reads in part:

    For some time I have been thinking about contacting Sister Genevieve Therese, who was my teacher at Mount St. Mary Academy. Since our school is now closed I would like to know how to contact Sister. I want to thank her for her positive influence on my life.

    The young woman was informed that Sister Genevieve Therese died on July 27, 1969.

    A victim of cancer of the liver, she had come to Maria Hall in March of 1967 to wait for death. It came slowly.
