Ingersoll Tribune (Ingersoll, Oxford County, Ontario, Canada). Surety: 4. DEATH NOTICE: OXFORD CENTENARIAN, MRS. LUCY SCOTT PASSES Lucy C. Sage, widow of the late Silas Scott, familiarly known as 'Aunt Lucy', Oxford County's oldest woman, died on Monday evening, August 21st, at the residence of her grandson, George Scott, West Oxford [township], near Beachville. She was 101 years of age on May 18th, last. Born in West Oxford [township], near Folden's Corners, the late Mrs. Scott had been a life long resident of the district. For a number of years she made her home in Ingersoll with her son, Frank Scott. Mrs. Scott was widely known. Fond of telling earlier days in the district, she was an interesting conversationalist and recalled vividly much of Oxford's early history. Mrs. Scott was active despite her age and until a short time ago, continued her favourite pastime, that of making hooked rugs. When she celebrated her 100th birthday, in 1938, official presentation of a bouquet of roses was made her on behalf of the town of Ingersoll while other organizations also joined in paying her tribute. On that occasion she received many visitors and cut the elaborate cake especially made to mark the eventful occasion. She suffered a hip injury last October and since that time her condition had been weakening. Her husband has been dead a number of years. Surviving are a son, Frank, Ingersoll; and a daughter, Mrs. Charles Stevens, Urbana, Illinois; both of whom were at the bedside when death came. Ten grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren also survive. The funeral will be held this ]Thursday] afternoon from the residence of her grandson, George Scott, at 2 o'clock with burial in West Oxford Cemetery.
