Bertha Clarke turns 108 today
Bertha Clarke is celebrating her 108th birthday today.
Clarke was born October 20, 1893 to William and Sarah Caravan of Lushes Bight.
She married Hubert Clarke, and they had one son Herb. Herb and his wife Margaret had 10 children. Clarke lived on her own until she was 88, and has since been residing at the Corner Brook Inter-faith Home for Senior Citizens. Although Clarke spends most of her time resting, the staff at the Inter-faith Home is confident that she understands what is being said to her. If you ask her a question, she will answer with a nod of her head. If you are a familiar or friendly face, you are guaranteed to get a great big smile. Beverly Wheeler, a staff member at the home, said that Clarke loves to have a milk-shake in the evening, and in return she gives one of those big smiles. They say her faith and religion contributes to her long life.
She loves for the women of the Salvation Army to sing to her, and looks forward to their regular visits. Clarke's family says she lights up when she sees the Salvation Army uniform coming. On her birthday, a few family members and friends from the Salvation Army will spend the afternoon with her at the home, where she will cut her 108th birthday cake.
(A nice photo of Bertha Clarke accompanied the story.)
