Damariscotta woman got birthday card from Queen Elizabeth the day the monarch died

On September 8th, the day Queen Elizabeth II of England died, Gladys “Bobbie” Selverstone received a personalized and signed birthday card from Her Majesty wishing her a very happy 100th birthday.

After reading the card, her daughter, Jane Selverstone, had to break Bobbie the sad news that the monarch who ruled much of Scots’ life was dead.

“I was very fond of this lady and was beyond horrified to hear that she passed,” Bobbie said during a Sept. 13 interview with Jane and her son Andrew at their Lewis Point home in Damariscotta.
