The Augustinian reformer of the Windesheim reform, Johannes Busch, took three sisters from this house, Ida, Tecla, and the lay-sister Adelheid to reform St. Marienberg. They spent three years at St. Marienberg, where Ida became subprioress. Tecla instructed the nuns in singing, grammar, and school subjects. After her departure, her students wrote to her in Latin to thank her and the others for what they had done. Tecla's letter in reply praised her former students for their accomplishments.
