CALHOUN WOMAN GETS HER DOUBLE ZEROS - Ruby Husk Craddock Turns 100

(06/14/2011)

Ruby is Calhoun's latest centenarian

A life-long Calhoun woman had her wish come true yesterday, celebrating 100 years.

She received lots of cards from well-wishers and enjoyed a birthday party given to her at Minnie Hamilton Long-Term Care.

Ruby Husk Craddock, who was interviewed earlier by the Herald, always said, "I want to live long enough to have those double zeros."

Growing up in a remote hollow near Hur, she made a trip into that deep hollow to visit her birth home one last time. The house was long gone.
