Sister Therese Mary Foote, OP, RPh
After 25 years as a math and science teacher, including three years on the high school faculty at St. Joseph Academy in Adrian, Sister Therese Mary’s professional life took a very different path.
Already the holder of a master of science degree in biology from the University of Notre Dame, she went back to school and earned a degree in pharmacy from the University of Michigan. She then spent the next three decades as a registered pharmacist, first at the Adrian Dominican Sisters’ on-campus pharmacy, Dominican Pharmacy, and then in drug stores in the Detroit metropolitan area. For the last sixteen years of her active ministry, she was a pharmacist at the Cherry Hill Pharmacy in Dearborn, Michigan.
