The Deaconess was a missionary to Native Americans in Oklahoma, Alaska, and the Everglades. She came to Florida in 1933 where she remained active at her little Glade Cross Mission until she was over 85 years old, helping the Seminoles and Miccosukees market their crafts and improve their standard of living. She also touched the lives of local residents around Everglades City and in nearby Marco Island where she taught sewing and Sunday School.
