    • A Centenarian's Death. Over 103 Years Old.
      Miss Eleanor Thompson DOVE died at 5, Albion-road, Fordingbridge, after a short illness. She had attained the age of 103 years and nine months, and until a week before her death she enjoyed good health. She took interest in passing events; she was contented and cheerful almost to the last. Her end was very peaceful.

      Miss DOVE was the daughter of the late Richard DOVE, of Bull Point and Devonport, who held a Government post as Ordnance Storeholder for 47 years.

      She was housekeeper to the late Mr. Thomas T. Edwards, and for the past four years she had lived witih Miss MOORE at 5, Albion-road. When Miss DOVE attained her 100th birthday on the 27 April 1929, she was very pleased at receiving a letter of congratulation from the King and Queen.

      Miss DOVE had lived a very quiet life. This, with the devoted care of Miss Moore for the past four and half years, probably accounted for her exceptionally long life.

      The funeral took place at the Non-conformists Cemetery. It was conducted by the Plymouth Brethren, to which body the deceased belonged.

      The mourners were: Mrs. LOBB (niece, Cawsand), Mr. and Mrs. Leonard DOVE (great-nephew and great niece), Mr. and Mrs. CORBETT (Gloucester), Mr. B. PULLEN (Botley), Miss MOORE, Miss MANN, Miss WRAGG (Cardiff), Mr. J. C. EDWARDS and Mr. S. B. RAKE. (Newspaper)
