KUCHING, Dec 17: Nyadi Dolah, one of the last four Bidayuh Ring Ladies in Sarawak, has died at the age of 92.

She was laid to rest at the Anglican Cemetery in the Bengoh Dam Resettlement Scheme today.

According to a news report by New Sarawak Tribune, Nyadi drew her last breath on Friday (Dec 16) at about 1am when she was at home at Kampung Semban.
