Two Walter B. Crook residents celebrate 103 years at birthday party

Two residents at the Walter B. Crook Nursing Facility at North Sunflower Medical Center celebrated with family, friends and nursing home staff their 103rd birthdays. Though Ella Amason will turn 103 in November, the two were honored side-by-side in a celebration that included music, food and memories. Pictured left are Amason and her son David Roberts (immediate left), and pictured to the right is Mary Williams with her grandson Howard Williams. Williams turned 103 on April 1. Both Amason and Williams received keys to the City of Ruleville during the ceremony.
