She was a daughter of National School teachers, Patrick Purcell (1882-1975) and Mary Bridget Reynolds (1881-1927). Like so many Irish people of her generation she suffered from TB. Having entered the Sisters of Mercy as a postulant her superiors sent her to Australia in the belief that the dry climate would restore her health.
