She was born Esther Blondin on 18 April 1809 in Terrebonne, Lower Canada,
to Jean-Baptiste Blondin and Marie-Rose Limoges, simple farmers who
lived on a country road called Côte Terrebonne on the edge of the Mille Îsles River.
At the age of 20, she became a domestic servant to a local merchant to
help support her parents. Shortly after that, she was hired to work for
the Sisters of the Congregation of Notre Dame of Montreal, who staffed the parochial school
of the town. Having grown up illiterate, she learned how to read and
write from the Sisters of the convent. In 1833 Blondin was accepted into
the novitiate of the Congregation, but had to leave soon after her admission for health reasons.

Later that same year, Blondin accepted the invitation from another
former novice of the Congregation, who was running a parochial school in
to join her in teaching there. Within a few years, she had become the
principal of the school, then known as the Académie Blondin, where she
trained teachers for the rural schools of the province.
