Description DM2011053025:SAED:SOCIAL:PERSONALITY:NOV 1956 – Mrs Geraldine Spooner – Old mother Spooner continues to go to church untringly – the one pillar of faith that’s left to her in her old age. A woman who just refuses to be bogged down by age is Mrs. Geraldine M. Spooner. At 83 she is one of the oldest – and liveliest – people in Phokeng, Rustenburg. And Rustenburg – the place of rest – is only about 104 old! She came to South Africa in 1915 with her late husband, the late Reverend Kenneth Egerton Spooner, to do missionary work among the Bafokeng. They first started off with a grass-thatched roof for a church and six years later they added a school next to it. (Photograph by Drum Photographer ©BAHA)
