    A personal recollection of the late Ann Miller, who in 1989 left behind her public life and 10 adult children to become Carmelite Sister Mary Joseph of the Trinity.

    The last time I saw Ann Miller, she was seated behind a grille at the cloistered Carmelite monastery in Des Plaines, Illinois. The fashionable clothes and Elizabeth Arden haircut were gone. Instead she wore a brown Discalced Carmelite habit and black veil. And she was far from the circle of family members and entourage of friends that had defined her life as a wife and mother of 10, and a prominent social and civic figure in San Francisco.

    I'm not sure I would of left my children or grandchildren to be cloistered, but it sounds like it worked out for her.
