She managed her time well in utilising it in her work, common activities and prayer. She was punctual for all the spiritual exercises as well as her mission. At community recreations she was hearty. She had deep faith in God which made her to surrender her life eventualities into the caring hands of God. She was devoted to Pastoral care;sought to serve the people in distance parishes on Sundays by teaching catechism, animating Marian Sodalities and attending SCC meetings.

She was a hard worker and spent her time until recently in assisting various School offices in maintaining accounts and other correspondence. When she was assigned the Aided clerical job in the High School office, she took a leap of faith and she served in all sincerity, fidelity, transparency and loyaltyin various Educational Institutions of the Congregation.She was a member of Bethany Convent, Bangalore, St Mary’s Convent, Arsikere, St Xavier’s Convent, Ajekar, Nazareth Convent, Bajpe, Maryvale Convent, Kinnigoli, Madeleine Convent, Mulki, St Raymond’s Convent Vamanjoor and presently Santa Cruz Convent, Kulshekar.
