Tessie Kirby turns 100

Tessie Kirby celebrated turning 100 years old on Feb. 23, with a party at Spring Arbor.

Kirby is a resident at Spring Arbor and her nieces, Christine Barnes of Wilson and Jean Walston of Rocky Mount, entertained her with a big celebration.

Kirby was born to parents, Isaic and Martha Baker in Pitt County, along with her twin sister, Dessie, on Feb. 23, 1913.

She married Amos Culifer in 1927 and had three children: James, Mary and Robert. Her second husband was Willie Kirby. Kirby likes to sew and make hand quilts. In 1974, she started making Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls and sold them at craft shows and flea markets. She was featured in The Wilson Times along with her dolls in 1974.

Kirby moved to Spring Arbor in 2009 and enjoys outings and activities there. She attends Farmington Heights Church on Sunday mornings with her niece.
