Saying goodbye to ‘Nun Grandma’: The San Francisco philanthropist, widow and mother of 10 who gave it all up to spend her last 31 years in a Des Plaines monastery

Sister Mary Joseph of the Trinity, formerly known as Ann Russell Miller, was a prolific letter writer during the 31 years she lived at the Carmelite Monastery in Des Plaines, Ill. Since she had so many friends and relatives to correspond with she would often make a copy of her original letter then add a personalized greeting or message — often in red ink — at the top or on the back of the letter.
