MOBILE, Ala. (WALA) - Family and friends are celebrating a major milestone in Sister Aiden Donaldson’s life.
The Convent of Mercy nun and longtime Mobile County school teacher turned 105-years-old.
She said the secret to her long life is not exercise.
“I exercise on the computer,” said sister Donaldson.
Instead, the sister with the Convent of Mercy told FOX10 she has led a full life dedicated to service and education.
“Teaching. That was my forte,” she said. “I liked art. Painting. In fact, there are some in the halls.”
“There is probably no teacher in Mobile who has touched more lives,” added Archbishop Thomas Rodi.
Sister Donaldson has been a principal and taught for years at schools like Saint Ignatius and Saint Mary’s.
Many of her own elementary students attended the birthday party to say thank you.
“Sister was a beautiful, graceful woman,” said former student Cynthia Mosteller. “Very bright and loving.”
Sister Donaldson said she has lived so long in order to serve, and has enjoyed it every step of the way.
