Ada was born in Canada and moved to the U. S. when she was 7. She and her husband Carl farmed in the Nampa area where they raises three children. Ada went for her first biplane ride in Nevada, when she was 16 and has had a fascination with them ever since. Over 70 years later she got to experience the thrill of flying in a biplane again-and she loved it! Ada makes her home at Dorian Place in Ontario, OR.
