I discovered that the day before her death, Ada’s family posted a screenshot of the list of oldest people in the US. Obviously she had fallen ill and they knew she would die.Kinda reminds me of those clickbait celebrity death videos like “so-and-so posted shocking message before death”. The most ironic part is that Velma Hinds had already died at this time
