FRONT PAGE STORY:
Sarah White dies at 107
One of the oldest residents of the province has died at age 107. Sarah White of 33 Main Street died Friday evening. Mrs. White turned 107 last Dec. 23 and celebrated the occasion with a large gathering of relatives and friends at her home. Her memory was still sharp and at the time she clearly recalled many memories of Christmases past. With a birthday so close to Christmas, not much was made of the occasion in her early years but recently, her family would always have 'a time' that was attended by local musicians who came back year after year to help mark the occasion.

Mrs. White had nine children, seven of whom are living - Magdalen, Clarence, Zita, Raymond, Ronald, Doreen and Joan. Her husband James and sons Earl and Dean predeceased her. She has 29 grandchildren and 39 great-grandchildren. A funeral mass will be held for Mrs. White at 2 p.m. today at St. Stephen's Church followed by interment at the West Street Cemetery next to St. Stephen's Parish Centre.
