99-year-old woman being forced to leave West End apartment

Mary Frances Page, called Aunt Frances and Miss Mary by many in the West End, spoke Friday night from a hospital-style bed with its covers pulled up to her chin.

She is 99 years old and largely dependent on aides to care for her — a fact about which she feels guilty.

When she’s forced to leave her home of 15 years at the end of the month, she won’t be able to help pack.
