Gran gives in after 60 years
THE SAGA of the last holdout is over.
Leotta Burnett, the 94-year-old who had remained in her Road View, St Peter, home for more than 60 years despite almost all her neighbours moving away as a result of a 2009 deal between Jada Builders Inc. and the Methodist Church, has moved and the house demolished.
Why Burnett decided to move two months after a story on her resolve was published is unclear as the elderly woman declined to speak to the WEEKEND NATION, except to say she was comfortable.
She was now living in St Peter’s Avenue, on the opposite side of the highway.
“I have nothing to say to the NATION. I might go down the wrong road,” she said.
At the time of the story she was quoted as saying the houses there were too small for her taste. (CA)
