Alford's 100th birthday celebrated


Lucille G. Strickland Alford of Wilson celebrated her 100th birthday with a party Saturday at Elm City Baptist Church, where she’s been a member since 1931.

Mrs. Alford went to school in Elm City and married William Harvey Strickland in 1930; he died in 1969. She had three boys, Bill, who is deceased, Eldon of Four Oaks and Dean of Elm City. She later married Wilburn Alford of Nashville, who is also deceased. She has eight grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren.

Her hobbies have included bingo, word puzzles, reading, crocheting and crafts. But her greatest joy is seeing her family and friends and talking about the old times as well as current events.

Mrs. Alford worked in the mill in Rocky Mount after she married and then on the farm. In later life she worked for N.G. Cobb Store in Elm City.

Mrs. Alford was born July 25, 1913, in Wilson County.
