At Eddy's request, she served as custodian of the Mother's Room in The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston from 1895 to 1899. She lived continually in Eddy's homes at Pleasant View and then at Chestnut Hill from 1903 to 1910. Eddy often depended on her for prayerful support. In 1913, she taught the Normal Class of the Board of Education.
