Sister was Professed as a Sister of Compassion on 11 December, 1905. When the Novices were transferred to Island Bay, Sister Vianney was one of the Professed Sisters who also resided there.
During October, 1910, Sister Vianney was transferred to Auckland but returned to Island Bay in 1913. On 22 September, 1919, Sister was appointed Second-in-Charge at the Home for Incurables in Buckle St, until Mother Aubert returned from Rome in 1920.
In June, 1926, Sister Vianney was elected Third-in-Charge of the Mother House at Island Bay, a position she held until 1929. Then, in 1933, Sister was elected Fourth Assistant at the General Chapter and remained at the Mother House when her appointment expired.
Sister was evidently in poor health but she never complained, trying her utmost to keep out of the Infirmary. For several years, she was occupied in sewing, making and repairing household and personal linen for the Sisters, but unfortunately, from 1945, she could do less and less machine work.
Finally, in October, 1947, Sister was moved to the Infirmary where she died quietly, as she had lived, without any fuss or complaint. Sister was a good and faithful Religious who loved God and his Mother Mary, relying on St Joseph for all her needs.
