Born in New Mexico, the McIntyre family moved to El Paso where Rose Anthony
attended St. Patrick School and Loretto Academy in El Paso. In August 1937, Rose Anthony, like her sisters Agnes and Angeline before her, entered the Sisters of Loretto. In 1940 Rose Anthony began her 33-year teaching career in New Mexico. In El Paso Texas, she taught in St. Mary's and Loretto Academy. Rose Anthony was a great storyteller often regaling friends with stories about New Mexico and often, with a twinkle in her eye, telling stories about her family and all of her adventures in teaching. To have her as a dinner guest meant a delightful evening filled with laughter and happiness.

As a student at Loretto Academy, Sister Frances Ratermann's musical talents were on display as she performed in the El Paso Symphony Orchestra in the late 1940s.
She had a central role as yearbook co-editor in 1950. After taking her final vows she focused on teaching orchestra and choir in cities such as St. Louis and Denver.
Sister Frances was on her third-world experience in China when the illness of her parents brought her back to her hometown of El Paso. Soon she directed the show choir of Loretto Academy.
Once retired, she focused on residents of Nazareth Hall assisting in the management of the gift shop there.
