Sister Frances Ann Carr, One of the Last Three Shakers, Dies at 89 - The New York Times

Sister Frances, like the other Shakers, always hoped new members would join the community and welcomed visitors. At one Sunday meeting two summers ago, she rose to her feet and beamed as she looked at between one and two dozen visitors.

“It is so gratifying to look around this room and see it filled with so many people,” she said. “You will always, always find a place of love here.”
