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.
