100th Birthday Marked today By Mrs. Ives
(a photo of her leads the story)
MERIDEN (Special) - Mrs Julius Ives, Diamond Hill, South Meriden, will observe her 100th birthday Sunday in her customary manner, she said Saturday, by sitting at her window and admiring the landscape as spring takes over. She lived at the same farmhouse, erected by her late husband's father, since her marriage in 1882. Her son, Minor Ives, a former Grange leader, now conducts the farm, one of the few in Meriden which has withstood the encroachment of the home building boom. Besides her son, she has five grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. She is able to read newspapers and also listens to the news on the radio, but her greatest enjoyment since she has been unable to get around, she says, is to sit in the window of her hilltop farm home, and enjoy the view of the mountains to the north and west, and the village of South Meriden below.
