    She was 110 years old.

  2. What a well-written obituary, and an interesting story on how she was re-discovered.

    Truly the end of an era. How far away it all seems, and yet the ramifications of that war are obviously still very much apparent today.

    Thought this was kind of funny:

    At Marham, Mrs. Green witnessed what was undoubtedly the most benign bombing of the war. On Nov. 11, 1918, when armistice was declared, the Marham fliers celebrated by swooping down on the Narborough airfield, a few miles away, and letting loose bags of flour. The Narborough boys quickly retaliated by pelting Marham with bags of soot.
