This Memorial Day was a little different for one resident, Lucille Cranfill of Somerset Court of Mocksville, who celebrated her 100th birthday.

“Queen for a Day”, Lucille was surrounded by friends and loved ones.

Among those was Fred Carlton, pastor of Turrentine Baptist Church, who was one of the guest speakers.

Singing some of the birthday girl’s favorite hymns was County Commissioner Benita Finney. Other special guests included Mocksville Mayor Will Marklin and Town Commissioner Carl Lambert, and Davie Sheriff’s Mocksville foot patrol deputy, Karen Austin.

Everyone enjoyed a cookout followed by homemade ice cream.

Activity Director Angel Parrish along with the Somerset staff would like to thank Davie Florist, Staples of Clemmons, Lynn Johnson of Medi Home Health, Marilyn Robertson, Jan Denton, Marcy Joshorn and the Cranfill family for their sponsorship to make this extra special.
