When Germaine was an infant her mother died. A sickly child, Germaine suffered from scrofula and was ignored by her father and abused by her step-family and made to sleep under the stairs. At age nine she was put to work as a shepherdess and spent much time in prayer and refused to miss Mass, putting her flock under the care of her guardian angel when she went. She was eventually treated as a holy person and invited to rejoin the household, but chose to live as she had. In 1601 she was found dead on her straw pallet under the stairs.
