Happy Birthday, Besse Cooper!
115 years. That's incredible!
Cooper was born in Tennessee in 1896 and moved to Georgia during World War I to find employment as a teacher. She has 12 grandchildren and more than a dozen great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren. Her husband, Luther, died in 1963.
She was born in the 1800's. Think about that! Think of the things she's lived through, the things she's seen! Think of the advancements in culture and technology!
It's almost too much to handle thinking about it all.
Happy birthday, let's keep the record going!
