In doing my family history research I came to find that a relative in 1920 & 1930 was at the Our Lady of Charity of Refuge 'institution'. The archdiocese has provided me with a bit of information, however it wasn't very helpful.
The home was for 'troubled' girls. However, when my relative, Adele (Delia/Della) Kroening was there in 1920 & 1930 she was in her 20s & 30s (she was born 1893). So why was a grown woman at this home for troubled girls?
Also, I have NOT been able to find a death record for her. She died after 1952, so you'd assume she had a SS card ... but NO. I'm wondering if she became a sister and joined this order of sisters, but how do I find out for sure?
Any info you have on the home or Adele would be appreciated - please post or e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org
