A window at St. Mary’s Cathedral, Memphis, Tennessee commemorates Constance and all other members of the Community of St. Mary, which has served the cathedral parish for 140 years. Their best known work was caring for the sick and dying during a yellow fever outbreak in 1878. The popular term “Martyrs of Memphis” is applied to all those in the city and from elsewhere who lost their lives while providing care, regardless of religious affiliation. (Gary Bridgman)
