She retired to the Motherhouse in 1997, but stayed active as director of retirement along with some substitute teaching at Oldenburg Academy. 

Sister Constance is survived by her sisters, Mildred Schaedel, New Smyrna Beach, Fla., and Mary Jo Fry, Batesville; and brother Norbert Smith, Carmel.

She was preceded in death by her parents, sister Rita Schneider and brothers George, Harold, Louis and Carl Smith.

Visitation is Monday, Feb. 3, from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. followed by the service officiated by the Rev. Joseph Nelson, OFM, at the Motherhouse. Burial is in the convent cemetery. Memorials may be made to Sisters of St. Francis, P.O.
