On March 29, West End Baptist Church, 619 Dabney Drive, celebrated the birthday of one of its members, Inez Harris Wall, who turned 100 years old that day. More than a hundred guests gathered in the church’s fellowship hall for a birthday party. She received a plaque from the Rev. Ralph McGowan recognizing her as the oldest living member of the congregation. Pete O’Geary, Jerry Ayscue, Decie Harper, Geneva Harris and Mary Catherine Tucker all provided entertainment for the occasion. Wall’s brother, Dr. J.P. Harris, recalled significant events that took place in 1913 — the year of her birth. He also shared memories of his sister, remembering the places she lived and things she had done.
