Sister Albina Labonté
1940 ~ 2024

Sr. Albina Labonté was born on May 30, 1940 at the Holy Family Hospital in Prince Albert, SK.

She lived in Victoire until she was 11 and then moved to Debden to finish elementary school. She attended Stobart School in Duck Lake to finish high school. In 1958 she joined the Sisters of the Presentation of Mary and completed her education in Quebec before returning to Sask. in 1961. She taught for 11.5 years in Manitoba: Le Pas and Birtle School. She then taught in Prince Albert at the Academy Presentation of Mary. In 1974 Sr. Albina changed careers and earned a Diploma in Applied Arts in Nursing from the Kelsey Institute in Saskatoon. She worked as a nurse for 21 years. She started at Holy Family Hospital and continued her nursing work with our Sisters in our infirmary.

Sr. Albina continued her training as a spiritual director, working as a parish administrator at Sts Martyrs Canadiens in Saskatoon. From 2004 to 2010, Sr. Albina served as Provincial Assistant in Prince Albert. Sr. Albina will be remembered for her 26 years of wonderful theater productions with her students. We also remember the many hours she spent in the gardens, tending to the flowers she loved so much.

In November 2023, as her health declined and she required more care, she moved to our nursing home at 3101 3rd Ave East in Prince Albert until God called her to find her eternal happiness. On her journey of faith, she touched many lives through her spiritual guidance and love of the arts, her organizational skills and her creativity. She will be sorely missed by her religious community, relatives, students and friends. May she rest in God's love and peace.
