Anna Juanita Rathburn Price celebrated her 100th birthday Aug. 19 with a celebration at her residence in Bristol Manor with many of her friends and family.

Anna was born Aug. 19, 1914, in Centerville, Iowa, the daughter of Zern Franklin and Sara Eleanor Rathburn.

She has been a residence of Bristol Manor since Jan. 1, 2008.

Anna is loved by all that know her. She has helped take care of many people right up unto the last few years. Her church has always been very important to her and the love she has received from them has been very sustaining.

Anna credits her long life to plenty of exercises and fresh air. She still exercises morning and night. Up until recently she walked a mile a day.

Some of the guests helping her celebrate Tuesday were close friends from Oklahoma City, Howard and Nola Downs, of Sedalia, Maxine Jolly, Don and Char Staton, Marion Scott, Amy Mosier and her daughter, her nephew, Rosie Sipes, and many of the residents from Bristol Manor. Charlotte Staton furnished the music, a good time was had by all who attended. And many thanks to Carol and the staff there for a memorable celebration.
