On June 18, family and friends gathered in Gloster to celebrate the 99th Birthday of Emma Mae Allen. Her husband was the late Robert Allen, and they made their home in Grand Cane. Of this union, 8 children were born, including Ella Banks, Luther Allen, Bobbie Allen Edward, Emma Brooks, Irene Johnson, James Robert Allen, Rosie Blow and Rubbie Smith. Those eight children in turn blessed “Momma” with 22 grandchildren, 54 greatgrandchildren, and 30 great, great-grandchildren.

“Momma’s” actual date of birth is June 18, 1920, so the party was a couple of days early. The celebration included food and fellowship, with a beautiful birthday cake baked especially for Emma Mae. Lots of family stories and memories were shared making the celebration complete.
