Tuesday, May 14, 2019

On Friday, Mrs. Bertha Platt Waymire died at the age of 107. Mrs. Waymire was the oldest person living in Steuben County. Bertha’s birthday parties were something that turned into a big event at Lakeland Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation and now Aperion Care in Angola.

Bertha graduated from Pleasant Lake School in 1929. Her Husband, Carl, was also a Pleasant Lake Graduate. She was then the secretary at the school for years working under the administration of three different principals.
