Will Celebrate 100th Birthday August 22 at Family Gathering
Mrs. Elizabeth Hartshorne, 152 Glenwood avenue, Glencoe, will celebrate her 100th birthday Tuesday, August 22 , with her six children, thirty-seven grandchildren and thirty-nine great-grandchildren, at the home of one of her daughters, Mrs. Fred J. Hinks, at the above address.
The other daughters are Mrs. John Dahl, 988 Linden avenue and Mrs. Ruben Turvey, 1121 Merrill street, Hbbard Weeds, and Mrs. David North, of Chicago. Her two sons are William Hartshorne, 1025 Oak street, Winnetka, and John Hartshorne, of New York.
Grandson Has Birthday
Mrs. Hartshorne's grandson, Bert Heeley, of Chicago, will also celebrate his birthday at the same time.
A family reunion will be held at the Hinks home, Sunday, to which many old friends of the centenarian have been invited.
Mrs. Hartshorne, who was born in Shropshire, England, came to this country in 1902 and for thirty years has lived in Hubbard Woods. She reared a famly of ten children, five sons and five daughters, six of whom are still living. Her husband died 45 years ago.
Mrs. Hartshorne continues to enjoy good health and up to a very few years ago, regularly walked to the Hubbard Woods business district to do her shopping.
Her hearing is somewhat impaired, but her vision is good, and, without the aid of glasses, reads her Bible, daily. She is jovial and happy, and few, if any of the family are looking forward to the coming birthday anniversary with greater interest than the venerable celebrant, herself.
