Soon after she was born the family moved to Canton. When very young this child, impressed by the "olde folks", began a spiritual quest that, at age 9, led her to become a Catholic. The next year her parents enrolled her at Holy Child Jesus School staffed by the Franciscan Sisters of Perpetual Adoration. The life and work of the sisters so impressed her than at 15, she joined them by entering St. rose Covent, LaCrosse, Wisconsin. There she was given the name Thea. After progressing successfully through the formation years of Religious Life an the academic world, Thea received a doctorate in English literature and Linguistics from Catholic University of America. During these years she developed a deep appreciated for her identity as both an African American and as a Catholic. Blessed with extraordinary talent, she became a poet, a preacher, a master teacher, a vocalist, an evangelist and an African American catalyst. Thea eventually returned to Canton and served as director of Intercultural Awareness for the Diocese of Jackson.
