More information

The mother of six children (three died shortly after they were born), Jane Frances was widowed at the age of 28. She met Saint Francis de Sales when he preached at the Sainte Chapelle in Dijon. They became intimate friends. She was inspired to start a religious order for women, the Order of the Visitation of Holy Mary with his support, an order for women who were rejected by other orders because of poor health or age. When people criticized her, she famously said, "What do you want me to do? I like sick people myself; I'm on their side."



She died on 13 December 1641 at the age of 69, at the Visitation Convent in Moulins, one of those she founded, and was buried in Annecy.
