110 year-old SEK woman celebrates birthday

CHANUTE, Kan – When you’ve celebrated 110 birthdays, you deserve a parade.

And that’s just what Chanute native Margaret Hollenshead received for her 110th birthday.

A parade of well-wishers drove by The Country Place Memory Care facility in Chanute.

A choir, from Royster Middle School, set the mood with a medley consisting of songs from every decade of Ms. Hollenshead’s life.

Ms. Hollenshead couldn’t speak on camera, but Shannon Tyler from Country Place Memory Care described her as spunky, feisty, and lively, “She is fun to be around very loving caring she is just a beautiful person inside and out.”, said Tyler.
