A birthday celebration was given in honor of Estelle King of Patsburg by her children on February 1, 2007, at the Luverne Multi-Purpose Center for her 92nd birthday.

The celebration began at 11 a.m. when her son, Wiley King, welcomed everyone and introduced the family members.

Family members present were Wiley and wife, Edith, a daughter, George and Eloise Savoy, all of Enterprise, Ala.

Also, another daughter, Mary Ann Mayfield, of Carthage, Texas, attended.

Sending love and best wishes were Jerry and Shirley King of Tuscaloosa, Ala.

Helping celebrate were nephew and wife, Richard and Roslyn Brown of Luverne.

Wiley and Mary Ann sang several of Estelle's favorite songs and invited the guests to join them.

Edith accompanied them on the piano.

Wiley also led everyone in several songs.

He is the minister of music at his church in Enterprise and delighted everyone with his talented voice.

The family expressed their appreciation to Mrs. Bruniece Thomas, director of the center, and the senior members at the center for allowing them to host this special event for their mother with her friends at the center.

A large, beautiful, fresh floral arrangement was placed in the center of the honoree's table flanked with crystal candleholders with pink candles and ribbons.

Another table held a decorated basket in pastel colors and cheesecakes that were served to all by the family members.

Estelle smiled throughout her party and especially when everyone sang &#8220Happy Birthday” to her.

After the celebration at the center, the family enjoyed a birthday lunch, coffee and dessert at Estelle's home.
