She entered the Sisters of Saint Joseph du Cheylard, a diocesan congregation in Aubenas, and made profession on 24 August 1947, with the name of Sister Marie Antoinette.

Her life was spent working in Algeria and then New Caledonia and finally in France. She was gifted with the ability to work with the marginalised of our society.
