Saint Jeanne-Marie Kerguin, Jeanne-Marie experienced childhood in a poor worker mountain family. Her mom kicked the bucket when Giovanna was very youthful, and she was compelled to assume control over the family unit tasks for the family. With her home commitments satisfied, she joined the Franciscan Missionaries of Mary in 1887, taking the name Marie Santa Natalia. There she joyfully dedicated herself completely to a real existence of petition and commitment to the least complex and most modest undertakings of her home.

She was appointed first to Paris, France, at that point to Carthage in north Africa. She experienced medical issues and was sent to Rome, Italy to recoup. There she addressed the call of her Order to function as a preacher. She landed in China in March 1899, and was very quickly hospitalized for a while with typhus. Her fleeting vocation finished during a crackdown on outside teachers during the Boxer Rebellion. One of the Martyrs of Shanxi and the Martyrs of China.
