CORNER BROOK, N.L. – One of Newfoundland’s oldest residents has died at the age of 108.
An obituary says Mary Catherine Power died in Corner Brook on Wednesday.
Power was born Mary Kelly in the northeastern Newfoundland town of Gambo in 1909, and her obituary says “she lived each day to the fullest” in the 108 years that followed.
She was known as a successful businesswoman who operated a tourist home well into her late 80s.
Power is survived by a daughter, three granddaughters and a large number of other relatives and friends.
A funeral was held for Power on Friday in Corner Brook. (VOCM)
