Mary Sue Blackburn turned 100 years old on March 30. She was born in 1909 in Folsom, married Kell Blackburn on May 18, 1927 and had one child, Faywood Taylor.
She is the oldest living out of all her sibilings. Blackburn loved to garden and would do everything in a dress and an apron. She made everything the family ate.
“I can remember grandpa would go to the store for flour, tea, sugar, coffee, salt and pepper and that’s it,” said Rita Taylor her granddaughter.
Blackburn was a housewife and worked on the farm.
