Obituary average age. October 30, 2014: 76.92

Ice on Chesapeake BayThe average age of those listed in the thirteen obituaries in the October 30, 2014 Free Lance-Star was 76.92. The median was 81.5 with a sample standard deviation of 16.43. The ages ranged from 28 to 94.

This is the eleventh day I’ve been collecting this data.
The mean of  obituary average ages  using {77.375,64,74.143, 62.5, 55,66.8333, 74.11,71.27,68.82, 76.92} at Wolfram alpha is 69.1.

A quote that caught my eye from one of the obituaries:

“Bud started his day, whenever he was able, with a visit to Biscuitville. On days when he was not able to go inside, he would use the drive-through. As soon as they heard his voice, they would say “We have your order, Mr. Bud.”
