Margaret Alberth was honored Sunday, March 30, by family and friends for her 100th birthday in the social room of the Presbyterian Church.

This gifted woman’s life began on April 2, 1912, in Tidioute, the 11th of 12 children. Her beloved husband, Edward died in 1973.

They had six children which include Mary Grettenberger of Warren, Virginia Edmiston of Franklin, James of Lockport, NY; William of Schaumburg, Ill; Laura of Warren and Joseph of Tidioute. In addition, she has an extended family of many grand children, great grand children and great-great grandchildren.

Margaret enjoys living in the Tidioute Towers. She is an ardent supporter of the Tidioute Senior Center and has been enjoying the activities there for 41 years.

She still can be found sitting in her regular seat every Sunday morning in the Tidioute Presbyterian Church. Her long life has been enhanced by her many interests. Through the year when people would ask her what she enjoyed doing, she usually responded with, “Sewing, hoeing and going.” Margaret doesn’t do any sewing or hoeing now but “going” is still one of her favorite things to do.

Mayor Pam McLaughlin was present and presented her with a key to the borough of Tidioute. The key had a heart attached to it symbolizing that she is the heart of her family.
