103 Candles

More than 100 guests attended a Birthday Celebration this past Sunday, Sept. 26, at Gracious Granny's Assisted Living Home in Cottonwood. The Celebration was in honor of Helen 'Betty Boop' Townley. Betty Boop celebrated her 103rd birthday. Born in Shaunee, Okla., on Sept. 27, 1907, Betty has been a resident of the Verde Valley since 1975. Adell Houston of Dallas, Texas travelled the furthest for the party. Betty and Adell are long-time friends and have enjoyed a full week of reminiscing and laughter together. Betty would like to thank the many wonderful dear friends and family members who contributed to making her birthday so very special.
