Dora Rountree turns 100 years old Aug. 30


Dora Warren Rountree of Parkwood Assistant Living in Wilson, formerly of Smithfield, celebrated her 100th birthday Aug. 30. She was entertained by residents with a special dinner.

On Sept. 1 Mrs. Rountree was honored at a celebration given by her children, Dick, Charles and Steve, at Parkwood Assisted Living. She was entertained by a three-piece combo by Dick Rountree, J.C. Fields and Dan Murphy.

Mrs. Rountree graduated from high school in Smithfield and worked in retail sales until her marriage to Richard C. Rountree Sr. on Feb. 2, 1930, in Greenville. He died in 2000.

The couple moved to Wilson in 1936 because of a job change.

In addition to her three sons, the Rountrees had five grandchildren, 12 great- grandchildren, and two great-great, grandchildren.

Mrs. Rountree was a seamstress in her home and enjoyed sewing for other people. She also enjoyed baking cakes for other people and was for a while in charge of preparing meals for lunch at First United Methodist Church in Wilson, where she has been a member since moving here.

"The Lord has blessed me with good health, a good family and many good friends,” Mrs. Rountree said.
