The Rockford Squire recognizes lifelong Rockford resident, Mary Carpenter, who celebrated her 105th birthday on Wednesday, March 25.

Her church family at Rockford United Methodist Church asks everyone to remember her with a card (belated is fine).  Her address is: Bishop Hills, 4951 Eleven Mile Rd. #28, Rockford, MI 49341.

The Rockford Squire also wonders if Mary is our oldest resident. Is there another Rockfordite who we should be recognizing for their great achievement in age? Let us know at Squiremail@aol.com or give us a call at (616) 866-4465. We would love to congratulate them as well.
