Deposed as Superior General of her fledgling Texas Congregation by Bishop John Neraz of San Antonio, Mother St. Andrew left her identity as a religious to accompany her newly widowed brother and seven of his children to San Jose, California.

A woman of deep trust in our Provident God, Mother St. Andrew inspires her daughters even today.
