She came to this vicinity about 40 years ago after having lived in Detroit

and Chicago. About 35 years ago, she was married to William SWIX and 

spent the remainder of her life in this village.

Shepherd lost its oldest citizen last Thursday when Mrs. Ellen SWIX 

known to all as "Granny" passed away at noon just 12 hours before she

attained her ambition of living 100 years.


Before coming to Shepherd about 40 years ago to care for her father, she

had spent many years in various activities.


She was born in Oro township, Simco County, Ontario to Mr. & Mrs. Henry

COLBRY and at the age of twenty left her home to take up work as a maid in

Detroit. Following this she became a cook an a boat making the run between

Detroit and Sault Ste. Marie, for some time. She then went to Chicago where

she spent several years as a nurse in a hospital then taking up work in a

man's overall and jacket factory working up from a factory worker to a

saleswoman for the Company and at this work she spent much time on

the road for the company, being connected with them for about 16 years.


During this time she married a man by the name of JONES just prior to the

big Chicago fire. One she was fond of relating was how she stood in the

river with her sewing machine for some time, it being the only possession

which she saved from the fire.


Mr. JONES passed away a few years after the fire and she continued

to live in Chicago earning her living at various vocations until coming

to Shepherd to care for her father until his death.


About 35 years ago she was married to William SWIX and they made

their home in Shepherd in the house in which she died until his death

about twenty years ago. They kept a horse and buggy and it was

a familiar sight to see them driving about the country visiting friends 

and relatives.


Since the death of Mr. SWIX, she continued to live in Shepherd part

of the time in other houses which she owned and going about looking after

the several other pieces of property, giving up the active management of

this only about three years ago, when failing health and advancing age

forced her to do so. She however continued to live alone in her home

with the assistance of Frank MOORE, Mrs. C.S. McCLINTON and

nephew John COLBRY until about 3 months ago when Mrs. Zua COX

came to care for her.


On Friday morning it was announced over the radio program 

"Breakfast at Sardi's" that she was 100 years old and an orchid was

being sent her. This however did not arrive until Monday.


She will long be remembered in this village as she was so often seen

in her shawl and cane going about the streets.
