Celebration

August 26, 2007

Mrs. Laura G. Stumbaugh celebrated her 100th birthday at The Shook Home on Aug 14. Family and friends attended a party given in honor of her by The Shook Home and The Quarters at The Shook, a continuing care retirement community in Chambersburg, Pa.

Born Aug. 14, 1907, she and her brother were raised by their mother and father in St. Thomas, Pa. She moved to Chambersburg to live with her aunt and uncle at the age of 10 after her father passed away.

She was married for 23 years. She has one son, two grandchildren, one great-grandchild, five nieces and four nephews.

When Laura was 16, she went to work at a stocking factory, while she worked at J.C. Penney's part-time. After the Great Depression, she worked at the Stanley factory until she retired. For 22 years, Laura enjoyed volunteering at the Chambersburg Hospital.

At the young age of 100, Laura continues to enjoy life. She loves visiting with family and friends and keeping up to date on the Chambersburg news. Laura relates "the good Lord did a lot of guiding to get me where I am today."
