Blessed Josephine Leroux (1747–1794) was born Anne-Joseph Leroux in Cambrai, France. She became an Ursuline nun in Valenciennes, taking the name Josephine. She fled to Mons, Hainaut when the monasteries and convents were suppressed during the French Revolution but returned to Valenciennes in 1793. In 1794, she and several nuns were arrested there for the crime of faith and was guillotined with ten other nuns whose names are not known.[1]
