Birth: 1834
Death: Mar. 17, 1917
Comox
British Columbia, Canada

In 1852 she was a sister at St. Paul's Parish, Toronto.

She was one of "four Sisters of St. Joseph who came to Comox in 1913, expecting to set up a little hospital to serve the needs of a logging community. Yet it would be one year, June 3, 1914 before they admitted a patient from a logging accident. Then two months later, with the declaration of war on August 4, 1914, the logging operations were shut down.

The Sisters had been waging their own war; first to set up a four-bed hospital in a small farm house, then to renovate a newly acquired farmhouse, where by January 1915, they had 25 beds along with quarters for themselves. War in Europe seemed very far away but it was about to come to them!

The measles broke out in the Battalion (102nd Battalion CEF)and we isolated them upstairs in the wood shed. The Battalion sent up a couple of Orderlies for the care of the patients. Sr. Annunziata was their nurse."
