Hallmark Health and Rehabilitation Center hosted a birthday party for resident Alice Vaughn Tuesday. Born on Dec. 31, 1913, she turned 100 years old.

Vaughn, maiden name Halcombe, grew up in Laurens County, South Carolina, on a farm and worked in a spinning mill. Later in life she worked with the elderly as a caretaker.

When asked about her favorite memories, Vaughn said, “stay at home and do my work,” referring to her work as an avid quilter.

She is the mother of eight, grandmother of 23, great-grandmother of 31 and great-great-grandmother of 24.

A slew of family members, residents and staff came to wish Vaughn a happy birthday at her party.

“I’m glad to see all of you,” she said.

She has lived at Hallmark for a little more than a year.
