Religious Figure. After a near drowning accident in 1987, she became comatose, in a vegetative state. The doctors said that she would spend the rest of her life on life support and suggested to the family that she be placed in an extended care facility. Her mother chose to care for her at home. Shortly thereafter, mysterious things allegedly began happening. During a mass that was celebrated in her home, a communion host began to bleed. Shortly after, an image of Our Lady of Guadeloupe began weeping tears of oil and chalices suddenly filled with sweet scented oil. These occurrences continued to happen throughout her life. As rumors of them spread, people began making their way to visit her. What began as just a few scattered visitors soon became a steady stream. A mass was held every year on the date of her accident. As word continued to spread, people began to come from around the world to attend the mass. The average number of people who attended numbered between 2,000 and 5,000, but in 1998 the mass had to be moved to The College of The Holy Cross football stadium because approximately 10,000 people arrived. Her cause of death was cardio-respiratory failure. A vigil and funeral mass were held at Saint Paul's Cathedral but her family requested that her burial remain private.
