                On March 6, 1816 Theodore died. Joaquima moved to the family farm in Vic, a property she inherited from her husband.
                    She began to devote herself to the task of managing a farm.   
                      In the midst of all the farm activity, she spent long periods in prayer.

                  Joaquima extended her loving care to her servants, looking after their corporal and spiritual needs.   
                   She joined them in sweeping the house and washing the dishes.     
                     So passed ten years of widowhood from 1816 to 1826.
