Wilfred OsmondThis item is from the front page of today's paper but I thought some people might be interested in it. Corner Brook resident 100 today In 1940, Wilfred Osmond bid farewell to the fishery and his hometown of Safe Harbour in Bonavista Bay North and headed for Corner Brook. At 41 years of age, he figured that moving to the burgeoning industrial town on the province's west coast would offer his family a more stable lease on life. Today, 59 years after forging his new life as a millwright at the Corner Brook paper mill, Osmond is celebrating his 100th birthday. "I was fishing and in the woods all my life," Corner Brook's newest centenarian said of the first four decades of his long life. "I liked living in Safe Harbour because I was raised there. We used to go to Labrador in a schooner to fish. The fishery was bad at that time because prices were low. The war broke out in '39 and I thought it would be a good time to get a job (in Corner Brook) because there were a lot of young men going away. So, I took a chance on it." The move to the west coast did offer the better life Osmond hoped it would. He worked for the paper mill until his retirement in 1964. "I was getting a full day's pay when I was working in the mill," he said. "When I was fishing, I didn't know if I was going to get anything. Working here was a lot more stable and I got a living out of it for myself and my family." Osmond and his wife Flora had six children. Daughters Daisy Howe and Nita Colbourne still reside in Corner Brook while son Charles moved to Grand Falls, where he was principal of a trade school. A third daughter, Sophie Stratton of Corner Brook, passed away three years ago while two sons, Percy and Wilfred Jr., died before the family moved to the west coast. He attributed his longevity to working hard and having good health. "I did everything that I wanted to in my lifetime," he said. "Whatever came into my mind, I was going to do it. I always did my own work with regards to building a house and that kind of stuff." He didn't mind sharing his work ethic. He built two homes, one for himself and one for his son, on Premier Drive. Osmond lived with his daughter right up until he was 99. Now a resident of Mountain View Estates on Hospital Hill, Osmond has a fantastic view of the city from his quarters. Having watched Corner Brook become more than just a mill town, Osmond said he likes the way the city has developed in the past 60 years. "It's really grown up," he said. "Corner Brook's doing alright and I got no complaints. Getting the money to keep it going is the thing." Osmond uses a walker to help him get around. Sometimes he has to think about things a little harder but, overall, he feels great. Living to be 100 years old gives him a sense of accomplishment. To help celebrate his century of life, he was the guest of honour at an open house at Mountain View Estates this past Saturday night. More than 200 people, including 40 immediate family members, attended the event. "My family has been very good to me all these years," said Osmond. "They've always stood by me." As for today, daughter Daisy and her family are planning to take the birthday boy out to dinner. Tuesday, September 14, 1999, edition of The Western Star
