ONE of West Fife's oldest residents has died at the age of 105.

Sadie Dall was born in Kelty in October 1914 and passed away earlier this month at Lindsay House Residential Care Home in Cowdenbeath.

After moving to Valleyfield and then Dunfermline, the former Dunfermline High pupil worked at Crombie Ammunitions Depot during the Second World War.

She then worked at Rosyth Dockyard for 19 years before taking on a post with the health board where she worked until she retired.

Sadie then took on a role as a sales rep for Miller Homes and retired again when she was in her seventies.

After marrying husband William, she had one daughter as well as four grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren and three great-great-grandchildren.

Her daughter, Isla Easton, said Sadie loved dancing, singing and bingo and was also inspirational at writing poems and short stories.

Healthy living and keeping active is something she believes helped her mum reach the age of 105.

"She ate fish and cheese and vegetables but she never ate meat," said Isla. "She was a non-smoker and although she would have a glass of wine or sherry at family parties, she was not a drinker either but she did like her cups of tea."

No funeral service will take place due to Sadie's wish to leave her body to St Andrew's University. A special tea to celebrate her life will be held later this month.
