    From the files of the Congregation of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, Milwaukee WI.
    The following hand written autobiography was found in Sister Josepha’s file;
    I, Sister Mary Josepha – Teresa Schuh was born April 30, 1896 at Freedom, baptized in St, Nicholas church and named after my dear grandmother. On my first day at school, I sat close to my brother. The teacher asked my brother his name. He answered very slowly, “Ja-cup”, (Jacob) Schuh. Then she asked me my name, I answered “Trace-cup Schuh” thinking that “-cup” belonged there. The teacher and pupils had some fun out of it.
    We had to help on the farm very much. My father owned 168 acres of clear land. In spring and fall we had to stay home from school to work in the fields. When I was 17 years old I wanted to be a sister like my two Aunties, Sister Calixta and Calasanza. Sickness prevented me until I was 19. Two heavy operations cured me. After receiving permission from the family doctor, pastor and my parents I left for Milwaukee Aug. 1915. This was my first train ride. I had never seen a big city before. Homesickness was quite hard on me for some time.
    In November of the same year, I was sent to Kenosha. My second year as candidate I was stationed at St. Leo’s Milwaukee. At the end of this year I was permitted to prepare for my holy vows. August 2nd 1917 I entered the Noviate. My second years as novice I went to Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin at Holy Ghost Mission. The following July 23, 1919, I was permitted to make profession, after which I returned to Chippewa, where I remained eight more years. After these eight years I was sent to St. Paul’s Chicago, to take up the same kind of work I was used to, First and Second grades with sacristy work. In Feb. of that year I was transferred to Belvedere, Ill. Until June when I went to the motherhouse to be repaired. The following August I came to Lottaville, where I still am, to take the first and second grades there, together with my dear church work. I would feel lost if this charge were taken away from me. Amen.
