Platform Two – RCA


Life’s one long drag…

Marie Ellis was laid to rest yesterday after living to 105, & smoking at least 500,000 fags. Marie had puffed 15 a day since she was 15.

 The ex-typist was cremated clutching a packet of her favourite Benson & Hedges with staff from her nursing home laying a cigarette shaped floral tribute on the top of her coffin.  The staff are also installing an oversize concrete ashtray in memory of her in the home’s garden. Mrs Kallis, a close friend said:

 “She had a lovely send-off. A couple of people had a smoke outside the chapel in her honour, both before & after the service.”
