Ethel Glass will celebrate her 100th birthday with a birthday party with friends and family.
Ethel was born to Harry Normal Steele and Florence May Duerstein on Sept. 11, 1914, on the farm in Belvue. She and her sister, Anna (Ann) Rebecca grew up on the family farm and attended local schools. Ethel taught for several years, but chose to move to Hoisington in 1937, to pursue a business career. It was there that she met and married Milby (Bub) Williamson in 1938. During World War II, Ethel worked in San Francisco, Calif. for the U.S. Army until the end of the war, when she and her husband returned to Hoisington. For many years she worked for the owner of Peel Oil Company in Hoisington before retiring.
Ethel is the eldest of her generation. She married her second husband Andrew Glass in 1979, and they traveled often to see the country and enjoy retired life. Although both of her husbands and her sister have predeceased her, she continues to enjoy life and maintains a healthy attitude and spirit.
