She was born Mary Catherine Baker, the youngest of five surviving children.
She joined the Order of the Sisters of the Visitation in Frederick, Maryland, at age 50. She became a postulant on September 15, 1951 and served the cloistered convent community as an "out" sister (one who visits the city's commercial section and transacts business for the convent) and was invested with the habit and black cap, rather than the usual white veil of a novice. She served in the "out" sister capacity in Frederick and other convents for many years until her health declined. In her last ten years she became a valuable secretary to the superior. She also filled the role of houseplant expert and was known for her wonderfully tended plants. She also did much crocheting of baby blankets and "preemie" hats.
Sister Marie Aimee was truly a community sister, "the highest accolade a sister can be given" states archivist Sr. Mada-anne.
