She is survived by her sister, Sister Maris Stella Mogan, RSM; her niece, Cathy Childs Matteson (Michael); and numerous nieces and nephews.

Sister Thomasetta held teaching positions in Tennessee and served as a pastoral associate at St. Matthew Church in Franklin. She also ministered to the patients and their families at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Knoxville. When she retired, Sister Thomasetta volunteered at St. Thomas Hospital in Nashville. She also visited the sick and homebound and provided for those in need. She sang in the choir at the Cathedral of the Incarnation. She continued to contribute in a major way to community life at Mercy Convent until two weeks before she died, and she continued to ask about others until she died.
