She entered the Congregation of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet at St. Joseph’s Seminary in Troy, New York, and remained a Sister of St. Joseph until 1970. She taught at the elementary and secondary levels at St. Patrick’s School in Syracuse, New York, at St. Columba’s School in Schenectady, New York, and Keveny Academy in Cohoes, New York. She received a bachelor’s degree in elementary education from Saint Rose, a master’s in art from the University of Notre Dame, and a doctorate in art education from Ball State University.

Saint Rose Art Department Chair Kris Corso Tolmie noted that Clahassey was one of three courageous women who, together with Sr. Margaret O’Donnell, CSJ, and Professor Karene Faul, founded Saint Rose art department more than 50 years ago.

Clahassey is survived by her nephews: Charles Clahassey, Paul Clahassey, Patrick Clahassey, and Brian O’Neil, along with many friends who will miss her presence in their lives. In addition to her parents, she is predeceased by her brothers, Robert A. Clahassey and John J. Clahassey. Clahassey was also a wonderful friend to the family of former art department chair, the late Karene Faul.
