OLDEST RESIDENT OF AMHERST ISLAND

Mrs. Instant, whose picture appears here, is the oldest resident on Amherst Island, having celebrated her 93rd birthday on June 23rd this year.
Mrs. Instant is still able to take an active interest in her home and community. Her home is just east of Emerald village and recently she was present at the dinner that was given to mark the centennial of the founding of the parish of Amherst Island. Many prominent speakers were present from all over and Mrs. Instant listened to the speeches intently, ate a hearty dinner and had a good time visiting with all her neighbours as well as receiving congratulations from the visitors on her birthday. While Mrs. Instant is a little deaf, it is no trouble to carry on a conversation with her. She can see to read with the help of glasses and is able to walk unassisted. She lives in her own house with a lady for company and gets a lot of joy out of life.
