Crosby entered the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM) in 1952. She was an elementary school principal for 30 years, working in Spokane, Edmonds, Tacoma, Seattle and Everett. In 1999 she surrendered her teaching credentials after an allegation surfaced against her of sexual abuse in the 1980s. She died in 7/07. Her name was included on the archdiocese's list 1/15/16 of clergy and religious with established, admitted or credible accusations against them of sexual abuse of a minor. In 7/21 the archdiocese announced that it had settled two cases with claims of sexual abuse by Crosby in the 1980s, while she was principal of Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School in Seattle.
A female accuser filed a civil suit alleging abuse at an unspecified time by Frolick, director of the Archdiocesan Choir since the early 1970s. Frolick also worked at Sacred Heart Academy in Salem. She was placed on administrative leave when the allegation was made.
In civil suit that was to be filed 8/3/07, a man who was born in 1955 alleged that Sister Patricia Mary Anne, a nun and teacher at the Madeline Parish School in Portland, sexually abused him as many as 100 times over a two-year period beginning in 1964. The school was run by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary (SNJM).
