Happy 100th Birthday, Olive Patton!
What’s Up Yukon author Doug Sack wrote an article for our May 23, 2018, edition highlighting the most recent (2016) statistics that displayed the Yukon had no “card-carrying” centenarians.
He even suggested, and your humble editor concurred, that What’s Up Yukon might write a story about any Yukoners who were, in fact, 100 years old. So when an invitation to attend Olive Patton’s 100th birthday celebration at Copper Ridge Place was received, we had to attend.
Olive and her friends celebrated in style on Saturday, October 6. During the visit to Copper Ridge Place, What’s Up Yukon was delighted to discover from Dean Sean Murphy of the Christ Church Cathedral that, in addition to Olive, another member of his congregation, Mary Merchant, turned 100 years old in June of 2017. Congratulations to Mary as well!
