After many years of serving schools, parishes and retreat centres across Canada, Sister Ada Toner was “deemed too old and too deaf to do anything.”
Anyone who made such claims has since been proven wrong. Never a shrinking violet, in her 60s, she strapped on a helmet and rode the highways on the back of a motorcycle. For her 70th birthday, she went up in the skies in a hot-air balloon.
Sister Toner, 94, is still active in Fort Saskatchewan’s Our Lady of the Angels Parish, and spends her hours visiting hospital patients and leading grieving sessions for prisoners at the Fort Saskatchewan jail.
