ANNA WOOLHEATHER
STATES OLDEST REBEKAH

Mrs. Anna Woolheather, believed to be the oldest member of the Rebekah Lodge in Illinois, quietly celebrated her 90th birthday last Friday at the home of her son and daughter-in-law Mr. and Mrs. Roy Woolheather where she makes her home. In good health, Mrs. Woolheather, a charter member of Abigail Rebekah Lodge # 759 here, and past noble grand, takes a lively interest in current events and is an avid radio fan. During her lifetime she has lived through four wars, and has witnessed the advent of electricity, radio and atomic power, as well as great development in transportation and agriculture.
