BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO DORA HUNTER SPIVA – age 104!
And may she have many more, which I have no doubt she will.
Dora was born in Union County, Georgia, February 5, 1905 and I think on the go since. She was a high school teacher in Union County until she retired. She still attends to reunions and call her past students by name on site. Her mind is sharp and witty and by her alertness and quirks you would think she was much younger.
Truitt McConnell College in Cleveland, Georgia, now has a scholarship program in her name because of all the work she has done to get young people educated and on the right path.
Less than a year or so she started using a walker but I am not sure she has to. She probably uses it to please her doctor.
She and I are 2nd cousins, twice removed.
Here I am by her side at the last Hunter Reunion in Union County, last June. I am the handsome brute in the blue shirt.
