Port de Grave se­nior re­calls event­ful life

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE - BY BUR­TON K. JANES

The Port de Grave res­i­dent misses many things about the past. One of them is saw­ing and chop­ping her own wood, some­thing she did un­til re­cently.

“ That’s the work I’ve been used to,” Greta Hussey says.

Now, she stands by the wood­horse and holds the slabs as her son Rex cuts them.

“My chil­dren don’t want me to be at it,” she adds with a sigh.

Greta Hussey, 89.
