Grooms celebrates 93rd birthday

Thursday, October 14, 2010

Bertha Grooms celebrated her 93rd birthday on Sept. 25 at the Garden Room of the St. John's Mercy Villa nursing home in Springfield, Mo., where she is now residing. Several family members and friends were in attendance. Bertha and her late husband, Clyde Grooms, lived on the family farm near Couch, Mo., their entire married life. In 2009 Bertha moved to the Springfield area, but she has a lifetime of fond memories as a resident of Oregon County.
