Sister Wendys' Odyssey

Recommended Posts

Sister Maximillanne Young, 59, from the Poor Clares closed order of nuns in Devon, after throwing herself off a cliff. 

 

Quote

Her fall was witnessed by Clifford Dobson who been on a coastal walk with his wife.

He said: “There was something wrong about the location and how she was walking. I thought to myself she should not be there.

“She was around 20 to 30ft from me walking across the grass to the cliff edge. I don’t think she realised I was there. She seemed to pause and steady herself.

"Her nature changed from being unsteady to steady without a break in stride and she stepped over the edge.”

He told how she fell on to a cliff ledge 20ft below and despite his cries to stay where she was, she rolled her body over the edge and fell 100ft below.:(

Born and bred a prod, doesn't count :)

 

 

Eta if you want an actual born Fenian nun, Tava Colo, could claim to be even older. Born in Mayotte in 1902, she is 115. But this age is not formally proven since the French colony did not register births at the time.

A shocking miss from the DL!  I've been saying since 2005 that she was on the way out.

So is she the same Wendy that the thread was started about all those  years ago ?If so it's unusual  for someone to have their own thread for so many years but never make it on to the list isn't it?
