Parkinson to observe 100th birthday

Louise Heyne Parkinson will celebrate her 100th birthday on Fri., July 18.

She was born in Red Lion, Pa., on July 18, 1914.

She attended nursing school at Hahneman Hospital in Philadelphia, Pa., becoming a Registered Nurse.

Louise joined the U.S. Army as a nurse during World War II. Since her two brothers were serving overseas she felt she could help other soldiers survive the war. Her uniform is on exhibit at the El Quartelejo Museum, Scott City.

She met her husband, Louis Davidson Parkinson, while they were stationed in the Philippines. He was an officer in the U.S. Navy. They married in 1945 and moved to Scott City at that time.

Together they had six children; Vicki Burr, Beth Tuck, Bo (Louis) Parkinson, and Dan Parkinson all of Scott City, Anne Marchin, Manhattan, and Richard Heyne Parkinson, (deceased).

She has 14 grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren.


Cards may be sent to 1014 Washington St., Scott City, Ks. 67871.
