Sister Mary Ada Rohr
formerly Helen Cecilia, was born in 1908 in Cleveland, Ohio to Rosalia and Peter Rohr, two immigrants from Germany. Sister entered the Congregation at Maria Stein at the age of 14, and at 17 started teaching at Versailles, Ohio. For more than 40 years Sister Ada taught little children, preparing many for their First Holy Communion. She ministered as teacher in the Ohio schools of Columbus Grove, Ottoville, Ottawa, Resurrection; Dayton, and St. Joseph's Orphanage also in Dayton. She also taught in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, and Sedalia, Missouri. In later years, Sister Mary Ada showed what was her truest gift; love for the sick. Having many seriuos bouts of ilness herself, she knew how much a kind word and a simple offer od assistance could relieve those in pain. For a time she acted as a nursing assistant at Royal Crest Manor in Ottawa. At the Convent she would be the first to recognize those seriously ill and in need of care. She willingly changed their bandages, bathed their feet, gave them medication, and offered advice, support and comfort. She touched the lives of many, preparing a young retarded man for his First Holy Communion, helping a widow accept her husband's death, and visiting and befriending prisoners and the sick. She also became a licensed solicitor for the St. Anthony's Messenger, seeing this as one way she could be a missionary.

Over and over again she asked for grace to accept the Lord's will and to become more like Jesus. On September 15, 1985, Sister surrendered herself to death without fear, saying, " Lord into your hands I commend my spirit. Thy will be done." We rejoice in Sister Mary Ada's final and greatest victory; a total "yes" to God in offering her life in love and gratitude.
