OUR NUNS AT ST. MARY'S 1940s and 1950s

Since you asked, this is what our nuns looked like at St. Mary's when I was a student there. This was the order of the Holy Humility of Mary teaching nuns.

We always wondered what they looked like without their habits. One day my brother and I sneaked into Dr. Mehler's office when a sister was having dental work done, and we were shocked to see she did not look as young without her habit holding back her wrinkles. Her hair was short and gray; she looked like someone's kind grandmother; and she was laughing and joking with the dentist.

Somehow we lost all fear of her, right then and there.
