Poe honored with 50-year pin

The Order of the Eastern Star, Chapter 74, presented Gertude Margaret “Peggy” Poe with her 50-year pin.

The presentation was made by her nieces, Patsy Nelson and Mary Barkley, and her nephew, Russell “Butch” Himes.

Mrs. Poe is 94 years old, and until recently lived by herself. She is currently a patient at the Elkins Rehabilitation & Care Center.

When asked the secret to her long life and good health, she replied, “Because I’m fussy and fiesty” and had a wonderful husband.

For many years, Mrs. Poe and her late husband Ed were affiliated with various Masonic organizations.
