GLENNA QUEEN CELEBRATES 105 GLORIOUS YEARS - Gov. Tomblin Sends Congratulations


Glenna Queen, a native of Troy, Gilmer County, hit the ripe old age of 105 yesterday, with a celebration of the woman's at Minnie Hamilton Health System's Long Term Care Unit.

The birthday celebration, which was attended by family members and hospital staff, including a birthday cake, was highlighted by Minnie Hamilton CEO Steve Whited reading a letter to the celebrant from Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin.

The wall was filled with her birthday cards.

Ms. Queen, a resident of the unit since 2010, dozed through the ceremony, an excusable behavior at 105.
