Gladys Birston celebrates her 100th Birthday

Bill Westover of International Falls, MN, cousin of Arleen Birston Peacock of Winnipeg, sent us these photos. The top one shows Gladys on her 100th birthday taken at Rainycrest home in Fort Francis. We've included the one of her 99th as well, because it shows her daughter, Arleen.

Since the above article was published [June 5, 2004], we have learned from Arleen that her mother passed away on August 8, 2004.
