Sister Mary Joseph Vincent Baeschlin entered the Visitation Order at Abbingdon West Virginia where she professed December 13 1880. She was later transfered to Georgetown Visitation. There she held successively the charges of Dispenser,Habitkeeper,Assistant and Counsellor, and in 1900 she was elected Superior and re-elected to that position in 1908.
In 1912 she was selected to be part of the founding group of the new monastery in Toledo Ohio and was named as Assistant of the new community. During the early days on Collingwood ave she served as both Assistant and Procuratrix. While still in the Collingwood residence in August 1917 she suffered a stroke which left her with partial paralysis but recovered sufficiently to resume her duties as Procuratrix. Many were the labors and sacrifices she imposed on herself during the erection of the new monastery and afterwards in the moving from Collingwood and into the new building.
Her last solitude, made in October 1921 was one of unusual fervor for her life had become a daily preparation for death. Little indispositions had become more frequent of late, she bore them mostly in silence. One afternoon after chanting Vespers she went into the Sacred Heart Oratory for the usual monthly Novena, but was unable to rise after prayers. She was then taken to the infirmary where she received the last Anointing and Absolution. She was unable to speak or to give any sign of consciousness except to cling to the crucifix with her left hand. Two days later, January 25, 1922 she peacefully gave up her soul to God. Hers was the second burial in the crypt beneath the sanctuary.
