In the year 1904, eggs cost 14 cents a dozen, the average wage was only 22 cents an hour and Belle Lovejoy of Lincoln County was born. Monday, she celebrated her 103rd birthday.
Ms. Lovejoy lives in Hamlin and is arguably one of our biggest fans on first at five. Her family invited us to a birthday celebration as special guests and we went. There were a few snapshots taken at the party at her home Sunday afternoon.
Ms. Lovejoy is full of life, very active, loves to sing and graced everyone with a song.
Ms. Lovejoy was one of 12 siblings and is one of the last surviving members of her family. She had seven children many of whom shared the special day with her.
