This affair was planned and came
as a surprise to Mrs. Wills. Her out

at home, and Mr. Culberson, carry

like to visit her farm and some oth
ers around town, and would be
pleased to have her go with him.
Being an old country girl, and hav

Their absence from the house gave
the daughters a chance to complete
already advanced plans for the love
ly meal to be served.

group of grandchildren, friends and
neighbors had assembled in the
living room, and greeted her with
“Happy Birthday to You.”

lent herself to the occasion, and
greeted everyone with that deep
and sincere welcome, which is sot

she was escorted to the long dining
table, which was laid with an emr
broidered linen cloth, and with her
girlhood friend, Miss Dora Wilhite

nearest and dearest to her, her chil
dren, around her with friends and
neighbors seated at card tables, the
entire party was served a delicious

and a haven in her motherly care
and protection. These girls are scat
tered over a wide area of the state,
but they never let an opportunity
pass to come by to see her a few
moments, in appreciation of the
many kindnesses shown them in
And so it is, that through the
years, Mrs. Wills has grown into
what she is today, one of God’s
noble women—deeply endeared to
those who know her, keenly alert
to the joys and of folk in
this little city which she loves So
dearly. She remains interested in
topics of country-wide and national
importance, and being interested,
she is always interesting.
