Women’s History Month: Mother Theodore and the Ohio River

Process sketches for the statue of Mother Theodore by Teresa Clark.

On Oct. 4, 1840, Mother Theodore Guerin and her sister-companions saw the Ohio River for the last time. Mother Theodore reflects upon this:

“Nothing troubled the charm and silence of this solitude. Making the most serious reflections on what we beheld, and on our present position, I said to myself: Thus does life also pass away, now calm, now agitated, but at last the end is attained.”
